Creative Block: Origami Pinwheel

Another entry for:
Fresh Poppy Design

Origami Pinwheel

Each pinwheel is formed from folding one fabric, pinning it in place and then sewing the seams. Once the pinwheel is formed, you could either tack down the corners or do what I did in both examples below, roll the edges down and hand stitch them to form the curve.

Example One

Example Two

PostScript -- As a favour to someone, I'm working on a tutorial on how to make this simple block. Hopefully I will have it done by the end of the month.


  1. Wow, that block is *stunning*. I will watch for your tutorial!

  2. Such a neat design! I will be looking forward to the tutorial...and to explore Origami with fabric!

  3. What a great idea! looking forward to that tutorial! great job:)
