We found the perfect thing to liven up your summer projects. This folded pinwheel embellishment will work on anything that is pieced with a four-patch intersection. For each pinwheel, you will need four 4″ squares.
Fold each square in half diagonally and press with an iron.
Make sure that each piece is folded the same direction to make the super cool pinwheel design. Now you can add it to your background fabric pieces. Note: The background pieces need to be at least 4.5″ to keep the points out of the seam.
Glue, pin, or stitch each raw edge in place. Assemble four-patch as normal. Press the background and through the middle seams, but try not to press the pinwheel fold. This will make it pop up and look three dimensional.
Voila! Wouldn’t this be the cutest thing to add to your next picnic quilt? We used it for our fun Pinwheel Picnic Quilt Pattern using MaryJane’s Glamping fabric coming later this month.
