On my design board

I love twisted blocks! I’ve made a number of quilts with them over the years … some with focus prints, some with blocks.

A year or so ago, I found some leftover pinwheel blocks and made a small twisted pinwheel doll quilt. I really want to make a larger version of this quilt so I drafted it out tonight (at 4 am when I should have been sleeping but couldn’t) … I often design in RWB even when I plan to make a multicolored scrap quilt because it’s quick and easy to design in 3 colors AND a lot of my readers make and donate quilts for veterans so I like having quilt ideas for them.

Here’s my doll quilt

And here is my plan for the full size quilt.


  1. Great idea for some extra pinwheel blocks I have been collecting. Thanks!! You always provide new ways of using my leftovers.

  2. Oh my, such a cute block. Now I know how you get so much done…you don’t sleep! I don’t think I could get anything done if I didn’t sleep.
