Mosaic Quilters' Pinwheel

A group of ladies at my church meet monthly to sew together. They made this pinwheel quilt to donate to a family at a local grade school. A beautiful variety of blue, burgundy, red, purple, lavender and white fabric spin together for a stunning result.

Swirls as an all-over design add movement to this pinwheel block. Although this quilt was finished on a long arm machine, swirls are easily accomplished using a domestic machine. When quilting swirls, echo around the outside of previously quilted swirls to fill in the empty space, particularly along the border. Quilt to within 1/2" of the border to maintain the quilting density.
