Calligraph Pinwheel Quilt Pattern
Calligraph is a typical Designer Pinwheel quilt based on four-fold rotation of a tessellated right triangle. Hand-painted and dyed solid color silk dupioni and charmeuse fabrics gave the original quilt a satiny quality with unusual color.
The pattern is for one full-scale tessellated triangle only. Cut and piece the pattern’s patches four times to complete the quilt top. Add seam allowances to all patches. The quilt finishes at 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″, or you may use the pattern to build a larger quilt from multiple blocks–try reversing the pattern so shapes align.
Dashed lines on the pattern indicate suggested quilting lines and stitch-in-the-ditch used to define each patch in the quilt.
Supplies needed to make this quilt top:
• Optional embellishment: bead, mirror, applique, or embroidery patch for the center
• Fabric scraps
