How to Make the Perky Pinwheels Quilt

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting | 2000 | Episode 2010

It’s so much fun to see how today’s quilters refresh traditional techniques, and that’s just what designer Karen DuMont has done. Marianne and Mary demonstrate how to construct double prairie point units and how to miter multiple borders. They use prairie points to make a 3-D pinwheel block. Perky Pinwheels is a free pattern featured in Love of Quilting Sept/Oct ’12.
