I met Patti when we both became charter members of the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild. After the first meeting, I knew I was going to really love hanging out with Patti. We’re not the same age, I doubt we have similar backgrounds… but we’re both outspoken gals with good hearts (I’m allowed to say that about myself, right?). And Patti is one of about three people on the planet who has described me as “sweet” while keeping a straight face
Yesterday, Patti stopped by the shop I work at. We were chatting about the Kona Solids Challenge we’re both working on for the MQG. Patti has a great idea involving pinwheel blocks. We were discussing ways to make quick and easy pinwheel quilt blocks from charm squares (pre-cut fabric squares that are 5″x5″). None of the ideas we were coming up with seemed like a good fit.
Fast-forward 24 hours, and I have a “brain flash” (if you’ve always wondered what the opposite of a brain fart is, consider that mystery solved). So here, for Patti and the rest of the online quilting world, is a quick step-by-step of how to make a quick pinwheel quilt block out of 2 charm squares!
There you go – a quick and easy pinwheel quilt block made with just 2 charm squares and no waste! : )
