Framed Pinwheels Quilt

The Framed Pinwheels quilt is a master of disguise.  It looks like a tricky maze of itty bitty pieces, but don’t be deceived! This block is simply a disappearing nine patch!  Here’s how it works:  Whip up a nine patch of charms and lil’ pinwheels. Slice up that block. Shuffle the pieces. Stitch ‘em back together. That’s it!  This pattern was inspired by the creative genius of V and Co, and we’re so excited to share it with you!
