The spinner quilt block is a fun and simple design that can be easily sewn with basic quilting skills. Here are the steps to sew a spinner quilt block:
Choose your fabric: The spinner block is made up of four triangles in different fabrics. You can use a variety of fabrics, but it's best to choose fabrics that contrast with each other to make the design stand out.
Cut your fabric: You will need four squares of fabric, each measuring the same size. For example, if you want to make a 10-inch spinner block, you will need four 10-inch squares. Then, cut each square diagonally to create four triangles.
Arrange your triangles: Take the four triangles and arrange them into a pinwheel design, with the points facing towards the center. Make sure the fabrics are arranged in a pleasing pattern.
Sew the triangles: Place two triangles right sides together, with the long edge along one side. Sew a quarter-inch seam along the long edge, then press the seam open. Repeat with the remaining two triangles.
Join the triangles: Take the two sets of triangles and place them right sides together, with the seams aligned. Sew a quarter-inch seam along the long edge, then press the seam open.
Finish the block: Your spinner block is complete! Trim the edges if necessary to create a neat square shape.
Repeat these steps to create as many spinner blocks as you need for your quilt. You can also vary the size of the blocks and the number of blocks you use to create different designs. Have fun and experiment with different fabrics to create a unique spinner quilt!
Sew the squares together.
Mark the wrong side of the unit with a pencil line aligning the corners of the squares and the intersection of the seams.
Line up the corner of the square or triangle you will add to the corner of the unit:
Sew a seam one thread's width from the marked / ironed line. This tiny allowance makes room for the fold of the fabric so that the point isn't cut off the triangle.
Then fold the triangle into position, using the squares to assist alignment then press.
Trim away excess fabric to reduce bulk. Leaving a 1/4" seam, and trim the ears.
