Hello!  I am Amanda of Pieced Just Sew and I am happy to be sharing a brand new quilt tutorial along with you now!  I really like the way the small change to a traditional block can give you a whole new appearance.  Here, 1 change to a conventional pinwheel block provides you a block that I think resembles a windmill.  Let’s get started!

4 allure packs for background (Bella Solid 9900-98)*
1-3/4 yards for background (Bella Strong 9900-98)*
3/4 lawn binding fabric (SKU 29066-28)
4-1/2 yards backing fabric (SKU 29062-19)

*If you don’t have solid charm packs, then you’ll require a total of 4-1/4 yards of background fabric.

You do not need to use exactly the very same squares from every charm pack, but be certain that you have an even number of each print because each block uses two matching charms.

From the background cloth:

  • 15 strips, 2″ wide; subcut into 2″ squares (20 per strip) until you’ve got 288 squares.

If you aren’t using solid charm packs for the backdrop, also cut 18 strips, 5″ wide. Subcut into 5″ squares (8 per strip) until you’ve got 144 squares.

From the binding cloth, cut 8 bits, 2-1/2″ wide.

Earning the block:

Pair each square with a print charm square, right sides together.  Sew 1/4″ from the line on each side.  Cut apart on the center lines and press towards the print fabric to make half square triangles (HST).  Reduce each to 4-1/2″.

Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the 2″ background squares.  Put a square on the corner of each HST unit as shown below.  Be sure that the square is covering just the printing fabric.  When it’s touching any desktop cloth in any respect, the square foot is about the wrong corner.  Sew directly on the line.  Reduce 1/4″ away from the sewn line and press to the corner square.  Repeat for all of the HSTs.

Pair up two units with matching prints.  Arrange them as shown below.  Sew both units together and press as shown.  Repeat until all your units have been paired up.

Tip: There are two ways to make this block.   You are going to need to be certain you make every block precisely the exact same manner.  Otherwise, your windmills will not all spin the same way.  Bear this in mind when stitching your blocks as it might not be obvious that a block is sewn the wrong way until you begin sewing the blocks to each other.  The photo below shows the 2 ways to produce the windmills. Neither is wrong on its own, but you do not want both in your quilt.  I made my cubes like the pink block on the left.

To make the block, choose two matching pairs in the prior measure.  Sew together and media on. The middle of the block may be tight, so I advise pressing the seam open.  Repeat until you’ve got 72 blocks.

Constructing the quilt shirt:

Lay out your cubes into nine rows of eight cubes each.  Once you’ve decided on an arrangement, then sew the blocks together into rows, and then join the rows together.  When the seams are tight once cubes are sewn to each other, press the seams open.  Otherwise, press each other row in the opposite direction so that the tiles will nest once the rows are sewn to each other.

Sew the edge strands.  Measure your quilt in the top to bottom.  Cut strips to your dimensions required and sew to each side.

Your final quilt should measure approximately 70″ x 78″.  I quilted mine with an edge-to-edge pantograph named Spring Thing.

Thank you for joining me now!  It is possible to see what else I am up to by following me on Instagram or on my website .  If you create this quilt, please share and label me!  I would love to see yours!
