Have you ever made a disappearing pinwheel block? It’s easy! Simply stitch up a basic pinwheel, slice it to smithereens, rearrange the pieces, and sew it back together!
This week, Jenny is taking things one step further by spreading those lil’ pieces all across the quilt! The Deconstructed Disappearing Pinwheel is an intricate sea of half square triangles, bar blocks, and itty bitty pinwheels—and it all starts with easy-as-pie pinwheels!

If you’re new around here, be warned! Our disappearing blocks are quick and easy, but they’re a little…unconventional.
First, Jenny stitches up a perfectly lovely block. Then, slice, slice, slice! That block is chopped to bits! But don’t you worry, because once those pieces are rearranged and mended, we’ll have a block so intricate and lovely, you won’t believe how easy it is to make! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
