Seasoned Pinwheels Quilt

Hello everyone! My name is Krystal Jakelwicz and I design monthly quilt patterns on my blog called Lets Quilt Something. ( Today is my first ever Moda Bake Shop Recipe and I would like to share with you my Seasoned Pinwheels Quilt Pattern which I hope you all will enjoy! A little known fact about me is I LOVE pinwheels. I love finding new ways to incorporate the pinwheel block within my quilt patterns. Plus I love Jelly Rolls! Seasoned Pinwheels is perfect for just about every print. Today I have selected Cowgirl Country because as a fellow Texan I fell in LOVE.  Super cute fabric and I fell in love with the Cowgirl Country text fabric. Also as a added touch I quilted a “Rope” style edge to edge pattern in a wave format since the fabric features a few rope prints within the collection. I hope you enjoyed my Seasoned Pinwheels quilt pattern and tag me on Instagram your progress photos or finished quilts. Or use #letsquiltsomething

This quilt/project finishes at 60″ x 72″.

4  yards backing fabric {Cowgirl Country Suede Blue Text Fabric 1130313}
1/2 yards binding fabric {Cowgirl Country Denim Blue 1125657}



  1. With each 2 ½” Print Strips, you are going to open them at full length. Sub-cut within each strip;
  • 3 – 6 ½” x 2 ½” rectangles.
  • 3 – 4 ½” x 2 ½” rectangles.
  • 3 – 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares.
  1. With background fabric you are going to start by cutting yardage into 2 ½” strips.
  2. With background 2 ½” strips you are going to sub-cut;
  • 240 – 4 ½” x 2 ½” rectangles. (30 – Strips)
  • 120 – 2 ½” x 2 ½” squares. (7 1/2 – Strips)

Piecing A Block: (This quilt pattern was design to keep same prints in one block.)

  1. With one background 4 ½” x 2 ½” rectangle, place a 2 ½” print square on the right corner. Sew at a diagonal. Trim ¼” away from your sew line and press open. (Shown Below)

2. With your segment made in step one; you are going to add a background 4 ½” x 2 ½” rectangle to the top of the block. Press Open. (Shown Below)

3. Continuing on with your block segment made in step two; you are going to add a print 4 ½” x 2 ½” rectangle to the left side. Press Open. (Shown Below)

4. Lastly with a print 6 ½” x 2 ½” rectangle, place a background 2 ½” square to the left corner. Sew at a Diagonal. Trim ¼” away from your sew line and press open. Add this piece to the top of your step three segment. (Shown Below)

5. Repeat steps 1 – 4 until you have made 120 blocks.

6. Before piecing your quilt top, take 4 different print blocks and rotate 90 degrees to form a larger block. (Shown Below)


Forming your Quilt Top:

  1. Use a design wall to lay your blocks out accordingly.
  2. You’ll have 6 rows with 5 blocks in each row.
  3. Sew your blocks together to form rows.
  4. Lastly sew your rows together to complete quilt top.
  5. With your binding fabric cut 2 ½” x WOF strips and use your favorite binding technique to bind your quilt.


This quilt finishes at 60″ x 72″.

    I just love this design! I have a jelly roll I have been saving for something special,this is it! Thank you so much for just a wonderful design

    I too am a Texan and enjoy Sara Khammash fabrics. Thank you Moda! I love your pattern and really think the rope quilting is just the right highlight. Please, a hint on what direction to press the strips as I make each block. I want to avoid thick seams when I join the four blocks for each pinwheel. Thanks!

    • Great idea! I will keep that in mind on the next quilt pattern(s) I make. For this quilt, Step 1; I pressed my seams to the print side. Step 2; pressed my seams to the solid background rectangle. Step 3; pressed my seams to the print rectangle. Step 4; pressed my seams to the background triangle setting, then pressed it to the step 3 unit. Forming the larger block, I pressed in alternate directions when forming the blocks rows. Lastly pressed the block row seam to the bottom. When I layout my quilt blocks on a design wall I would just flip the block 180 degrees so the “middle block seams” nest together. I hope that helps you out! =)
