Quilt Concert: First Notes Block 16

October 1, 2021

Woohoo! We’ve made it to the final block!

Block 16 Instructions

Pinwheel Patchwork Cushion Top is a mash up of two traditional blocks, and a lot of fun to put together!

The Patchwork Cushion Top is block number 1756, and the Pinwheel is block number 1262a in Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

Sponsor and Prize of the Week

We are ecstatic to have Hobbs Batting for our sponsor again this week! The featured prize is a queen size package of Hobbs Premium Heirloom Natural Cotton Batting with Scrim.

This soft and pliable batting is made with very clean, high-grade, unbleached, long-staple, virgin cotton (which proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated Seal) combined with a very thin, polyester scrim (stabilizer) which is needle-punched into the cotton fibers. This scrim provides superior strength to the cotton, and prevents the cotton batting from stretching and distorting as it’s manipulated.


How to Win!

All prizes will be drawn based on Instagram posts, so make sure you have a public account in order for us to see them!

  • Winners will be selected by random drawing and will be contacted via Instagram direct message by Saturday, October 9, 2021. The winner must claim their prize by responding to the message with their mailing address by 11:59pm on Monday, October 11, 2021. If the prize is not claimed at that time, we will select an alternate winner.
