Piecing an Easy Flaming Pinwheel Block

It's the first Monday of the month which means we have a new block to piece together! This month we're learning how to create a Flaming Pinwheel block which features half square triangles and flying geese:

We've definitely gotten a lot of practice piecing half square triangles this year, but we could always use more practice! This time we're piecing the half square units together to form a pinwheel block in the center and surrounding it with flying geese units. Let's learn how to piece this beautiful block in this new video:

I do hope you enjoyed this new video! Make sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel so you're the first to know when a new video is released.

Of course this Flaming Pinwheel block won't be complete until we quilt it! Later this week we'll learn tips for quilting Matrix, our feature machine quilting design this month, then next Monday we'll learn how to machine quilt this block with a combination of free motion quilting and walking foot quilting.

I can't wait to share many fun tips for quilting this block and the gorgeous effects we can create with Matrix!

Let's go quilt,
