About this Quilt

quilt-twirly-birds-flat

The charming Twirly Birds quilt contains traditional Pinwheel blocks in 3 different sizes to create a visually stunning effect. Scrappy 8” Pinwheel blocks are set on point offset by a second block that contains 2 more Pinwheel blocks. Designer Barbara Glab used a packet of charm squares to create her large blocks paired with a neutral print throughout the rest of the design. If you’ve been wondering what to do with those 5 inch square packs, this generously sized quilt is a great way to use those irresistible packets of fabric.

Pinwheel blocks are a great opportunity to try one of the many products on the market that help make half-square triangles a breeze. From the Fons & Porter Quarter Inch Seam Marker to the many varieties of paper templates, purchase one of our many products to help your quilt come together quickly.
