How to: Pinwheel Star Quilt Block- 30 Days of Sewing Quilt Blocks- Star Version!

Hey guys! I hope you're having a great weekend. I fell off the wagon yesterday and didn't get a star quilt block tutorial posted, so you'll get two today. It was a busy day full of sewing, and spending time with my little family, you can check out what my day over on Instagram.

Anyways, today's quilt block tutorial is the Pinwheel Star. This block is super duper cute and will piece together quite quickly!

This block will finish at 12"x12" square.

White fabric:
4- 3 1/2"x3 1/2" squares
2- 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of these.
Gray fabric:
8- 3 1/2"x3 1/2" squares
2- 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares

Place one white and one gray 3 7/8" square, right sides together.
Sew 1/4" on both sides of the draw line.
Trim on the draw line.
Press toward the darker fabric.
Repeat, make a total of four half square triangle blocks.

Sew two 3 1/2" gray squares, one white and gray half square triangle block and one 3 1/2" gray square.
Make two of these units, exactly the same.

Sew one gray and white half square triangle unit, two white 3 1/2" squares and one gray 3 1/2" square.
Make two of these units, exactly the same.
Sew the four rows together.

Now, to make this into a 96"x96" quilt you'll need the following fabrics:
Gray fabric:
6 5/8 yards

White fabric:
4 1/8 yards

Super cute quilt isn't it!!!

Hope you all enjoy!

  1. I love all of the stars so far. They are great and your directions are easy to follow. I was wondering if you were going to include the Carpenter Star? Thank you for all of the great stars you've given us.
