My friend Pat made these framed pinwheels for our Prayer Quilts group recently. The pinwheel blocks in the centres finish to 5” square – why that size? Because that’s what worked with the triangles she had on hand.
We framed each one with strips cut 2 1/4” wide. This seems an unusual width, but Pat had on hand some muslin she wanted to use, and it was already cut in 4 1/2” strips, so she simply cut them in half.
The blocks will finish at 8 1/2”. We expect that 20 blocks plus borders (let’s see what’s available in the cupboard) will make a quilt the perfect size. It will look like we planned it that way!
