Today I wanted to share a twist on the basic pinwheel block with a tutorial on the Turnstyle block. I'll be using this block as part of an upcoming quilt so I figured out the math options and decided to share!
Here are three different colorways of the same block.
Let's see how to make block 1's coloring -
The table below has the cutting dimensions dependent on the overall finished block size required for your quilt. For each block, cut one (1) of pieces A & B and two (2) pieces of C.
Pieces A and B need to be cut into four equal sized triangles.
Piece C needs to be cut into two equal sized triangles
Sew piece A to B. Press seam to darker fabric. Sew unit AB to piece C
Make four units for each block.
Trim the dog-ears and as needed to the required unit size (see table below).
Changing the coloring of the block creates some new interesting patterns in final quilt.
Aren't these fun?
Have a wonderful day! Patty
