In the past, I've shown how to make blocks but we just made the block and never really did anything with the blocks. You can see how I turned the block into a great pillow in the companion post. The individual pinwheel quilt block will finish at 8 1/2" and 8" in a project.

I have realized recently that most people enjoy shorter videos than longer ones. I get that no one has the time to sit and watch a 20-minute video on making a quilt block. So because of that realization, I'm now moving away from those long videos and on to shorter videos that get to the point quick. These shorter videos will be found here on the blog, YouTube, and Facebook.
Making A Pinwheel Quilt Block
That's it! Pinwheel blocks are super easy and if you click over to the pillow project you'll get an idea of what happens when you put multiple blocks together. This is the basic method for making half square triangles. I will show you all a few different ways to make half-square triangles in the future but for now, we are sticking with the easiest way.
