"Calligraph" Designer Pinwheels Quilt Pattern
"Calligraph" is a typical Designer Pinwheel quilt based on four-fold rotation of a tessellated right triangle. Hand painted and commercially 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 in addition to stitch-in-the-ditch used to define each patch in the quilt.
