The Double Pinwheel block is so appropriate for a baby quilt. Do they still make those little hand-held toys that are plastic blades on a stick and whirl when you blow on them? Even if not, you can have your own colorful pinwheels on this quilt.
Not only was this block enjoyable to make, but I had a lot of fun making it as scrappy as I could.
Digging through my considerable stash of 30s fabrics to find my very favorite ones was no chore at all. Of course, when I finished, it looked as if there had been a whopper of an explosion that had strewn all these cheerful prints all over my quilt studio.
This quilt is square in shape, measuring 42" x 42" and would be great for a little boy or girl.
The coordinating backing I chose is a light purple with a small white flower on it.
I quilted it with all-over wavy lines to represent the breeze which will keep the double pinwheels spinning, and spinning, and spinning.

This particular quilt is one of my favorites that I've made to date. I hope it appeals to you for your own little one or perhaps to give as a special gift for a newborn or toddler you know.
