This pattern can be adapted to any season or occasion, simply by changing the fabric or embroidery design. The staff at Pfaff has included a free machine embroidery download for this particular quilted table topper. If you don't have an embroidery machine, you can just use a complimentary piece of fabric, or may some applique, in place of the embroidered section. Enjoy!

Easier than it appears - free pinwheel star quilt pattern


At first glance, this quilt looks like a whole lotta half-square triangles or diamonds.....but it's much easier than that. Great cutting instructions make this quilt only LOOK as if it took you forever to make!

This pattern would also be a great use of a fat quarter bundle. For the "plain" squares using the repetitive fabric print, I would consider substituting squares from a fat quarter pack. Cut your large squares first, then you can cut the smaller pieces for the pinwheel stars.

Thanks for the folks at Windham Fabrics for supplying this free quilt pattern.
