"The Pinwheel"
If this pattern looks familiar to you, it's because it's a variation of the "Friendship Star" I don't know which came first, just different fabric placement.

Crazy Paisley Fabric and What to Do with It

Pin It
 I picked up this paisley recently and I love it. Bold, colorful and ready for a quilt.
It's a 100% cotton and after washing it, it became very soft, I ironed and used a bit of spray starch to make cutting easier.

I like doing patterns the old way sometimes and this is my start.  I'm sure it will go to the computer, but sitting in my sewing room watching the world go by, I enjoyed the process.

Crazy Paisley Fabric and What to Do with It
Here's how the fabric is coming together, I think it will be a pieced and applique quilt.

52 Weeks of Quilt Pattern Blocks in 52 Weeks - Week 11

Pin It
This pattern is "Medallion Square" and it's a fun quilt block.

I cut squares and just pieced. If you want it to be as pictured, get out your colored pencils and take a few moments and decide the placement of all the colors.
The center white space can be any color or maybe a signature block. Have fun !
