My first pinwheel quilt.

Isn't this just the cutest room! Everything is so cute and tiny and look at that quilt. Amazing. When I saw this post from V and Co. I just fell in love with that quilt. It is so bright and cheery! I wanted to make one like it but I saw all those pinwheels and was intimidated. Luckily V and Co. has a tutorial on how to make pinwheels on her website. Thank you. So I went ahead and dove right in and started my pinwheels.

I bought cute fabric.

cut them up at 5"x5" each.

sewed them up using the pinwheel tutorial from V and Co.

And voila!

Only half way done!



  1. Wow, you are amazing...you just whipped that up! It's beautiful!

  2. A friend of mine is in the middle of making this same exact quilt/pattern. I love it! I'll have to try it too.

  3. Lana you are awesome! Look at that quilt!!! I'm going to have to try this too. And I did see this room before...it is so cute. Where do you buy your fabric?

  4. Analia - thanks! I bought my fabric at a local quilt shop. I usually go to the back where they have them on discounts. I bought 10 fat quarters for $10.00 (they are usually about $2.75 each). Or you can buy them precut (40 squares) for $8.00. I think I am going to buy it at $8.00 next time. That gave me about 8 squares (4 pinwheels) cut for each fat quarter. So that is 40 pinwheels for my quilt. About a lap size quilt. I am debating whether I should add white blocks in between each pinwheel to make it bigger. Hmmmm.... The hardest part is sewing everything exactly at 1/4 inch seam or they won't match up with each other. Good luck! I would love to see how yours go.

  5. ah look at your super cute pinwheel quilt! great job!!!!!
