When Jeri Auty made her first Tessellating Pinwheel block, she became intrigued with the process of taking square blocks of color, cutting them, and turning them into interlocking, spinning pinwheel designs. Depending upon the color, value, and placement of the fabrics, pinwheels can create a pattern’s primary design element. You might like to experiment with your own designs!
In this free pattern, you’ll turn blocks of red, blue, and white prints into Jeri’s 65” x 74” TESSELLATING HEARTS quilt. Jeri shows you her method, step by step!
