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.
- Quilt size will be 54 x 72
- Block size will be 9 inches finished
- Pinwheel blocks with be 6.5 inches with seam allowances and made from 3 inch finished HSTs (3.5 inches with seam allowances)
- I’ll use the instructions posted on my Website for my Twisted 9 patch to twist the blocks.
