Block 1 Instructions
This Pinwheel block is based on block number 1192.5 from Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.
The instructions are available to download for free through 11:59pm Eastern on Thursday, June 22, 2023. If you miss the free download, you can purchase the Block 1 instructions alone for $2.50 through the end of the quilt along. The full pattern is available for purchase at any timethrough my Etsy Shop.
How-to Video for Quilt Concert 2023 Block 1
The best part of Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) is that once you learn a few basic techniques, you can construct any FPP design. To help you learn these techniques, we are offering instructional videos for each block of the quilt along. This week you will join Lovingly Lissa as she walks you through constructing the Pinwheel block.
