Because my quilts are scrappy and made from stash, fabric yardage calculations for most of my quilt instructions are not available and when included, they are estimates only – click here for more information.

    Yours is my favourite quilting site. I love the designs and the photos. Could you please send me the instructions for the sixteen patch and pinwheels quilt. Thanks for sharing your work! Paula

    this is definately another one of your designs i am going to have to make. I will go scrappy I think so I can make a dent in my 2.5″ scraps. Thanks mary for another beautiful but achievable design.

    I just love your 16 patch and pinwheel quilt…I am unable to download the pdf…was wondering if you could help me out.

    Thank you, Patty Poppinga

    Just started this pattern with a pile of leftover scraps from previous projects. I decided to keep the background fabric the same throughout to gel the multitude of colors placed into the blocks. Appreciate the freebie. What a stress free pattern. I intend to just boogie along to my 70’s tapes and sew each piece randomly.Thanks a bundle for the inspiration….Carol.

    Wondering if you could give me any kind of a fabric amount estimate for this? For instance, the green quilt…how many different prints and approx. how much of each. Nice design, thanks.

    I happen to find your 16 Patch and Pinwheel quilt pattern but didn’t see any fabric requirements. Can you possibly give me this?

    Thank you so much,
    Kathy Hartsell
