Quick Pinwheel Quilt Pattern Free

Need a quick gift? This is it. Not only quick but fun. Warning: This could be addictive. Lets get started.
To make a pinwheel: Using 1/4" seam allowance sew a light and a dark 2" strip together lengthwise. Press seam toward the dark fabric. Cut the pieced strip into 3-1/2" sections. See Diagram below.
Using the diagram below as a guide sew four cut sections together to make a
6-1/2" x 6-1/2" pinwheel block. Press seams to one side.

That's all there is to it. Below shows a sample of how to use these blocks. The border strips were cut 3-1/2".
The finished size is 18-1/2" x 42-1/2".

Some ideas:
Use scraps to make each pinwheel a different color.
Holiday fabrics are great for special occasions. 
Make a square table topper or candle mat.
A wall hanging or quilt is easy. Just sew as many blocks together as needed.
Enjoy! Wishing you the best of the new year.
