Spinning Stars Quilt

Careful color placement in the hourglass units in this table topper results in a pink pinwheel at the center of each block. Before cutting your fabric, experiment with graph paper and colored pencils to see what secondary patterns you can make emerge. Fabrics are from the 1 is One collection by Tasha Tudor for RJR Fabrics.
