March Blocks - do.good.stitches - Picnic Pinwheel

This month I asked the group to choose between these 3 blocks.
The general vote was that I like star blocks (which is true) and the vote was split between the 2nd and 3rd option. I decided to go with option 2. This block by Patch the Giraffe. 

The difference is that we will be using the following colors. Fuchsia, Teal, Orange, Purple. When you pick your fabrics please pick jewel tones that are either solids or tone on tone prints, minimal white in the fabrics if any.

Our background color will be white like the finished quilt here.

The only thing that is changing from the original tutorial are the colors used. You can pick any 4 fabrics you would like, as long as they are Fuchsia, Teal, Orange, Purple and are solid or tone on tone. So if you want to use 2 teal fabrics, 1 orange and 1 purple feel free. Just 4 different fabrics + white background fabric in each block. You will make 2 blocks that will finish 12.5"

White/Background: 4 - 4.5 inches square, 8 - 2.5 inches square
Fabric 1: 4 - 6.5 by 2.5 inches
Fabric 2: 4 - 4.5 by 2.5 inches 
Fabric 3: 4 - 2.5 inches square
Fabric 4: 4 - 2.5 inches square 


  1. This is such an honor! Thank you for doing this for charity, I cannot wait to see the final quilt :)
