The Windmill Pinwheel Quilting Block

Here is a pinwheel block that should be very easy for you to make.  There are nothing but squares and Half Square Triangles in this block.

 

This block is a 4 patch, further divided into 16 smaller sections.   I don't even have to put up the grids.  They are obvious. 

 

The key to making this block a success is once again value.  Be sure those blocks that make up the pinwheel effect (yellow in the above picture) pop.

 

I have made this block in Autumn colors, but this block looks good in bright, primary colors for children.  Pinwheel quilting blocks look nice in all types of quilt, but their movement always adds a playful element to quilts for children.
