"Fractures" Designer Pinwheel Quilt Pattern
"Fractures" is a typical Designer Pinwheel quilt based on four-fold rotation of a tessellated right triangle. The original quilt was made from solid color silk dupioni fabrics, with extra wide borders rolled to the back to finish the quilt edges.
The pattern makes a quilt 27" x 27". 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.
Dashed lines on the pattern indicate suggested quilting lines (better than in the original quilt!) in addition to stitch-in-the-ditch used to define each patch in the quilt.
There are no unnecessary seam lines in Designer Pinwheels quilts; every seam involves a fabric/color change. S
