Grab two squares and let’s sew up a super simple and cute quilt block! The disappearing pinwheel starts off as a pinwheel and then with some shuffling and cutting, it becomes a double pinwheel (with a pinwheel in the center).
2 squares that are equal in size
I used two squares that are 10″ x 10″ one background, one color / print fabric
*Fabric used is Michael Miller – All American – check out all the fun prints here!
