I used scraps for the accent fabrics and a light fabric for the background. This could be all scrappy if you use an assortment of low volume prints for the background.

Use as many or a few scraps as you like. Instructions include rotary cutting and AccuQuilt cutting. For the sample quilt, I used black with white dots for the main pinwheels. The secondary pinwheels are made from bright scraps. The background was made from a white tone-on-tone and white fabric with black dots.
You can scrap up all the backgrounds using low volume prints or light fabrics and scrap up the pinwheels as much as you like.

Just so you know..... this is an easy quilt to cut and piece, but it is not a quick quilt to cut and piece! It is, however, well worth the effort because it is very pretty.

This quilt is made from 38 strips that are 2-1/2” x WOF. Use a jelly roll, precut strips or cut your own strips from scraps.
In this free quilt tutorial, you will learn how to make this simple quilt by sewing strip sets and cutting them into segments.
This scrap quilt is easy to make but it is NOT a fast quilt to make. Take your time with this one. There are so many half square triangles it might make sense for you to make up a little stack of HST and throw them in a container until they have multiplied quite a bit. The good part is that, I think, it is well worth the time and effort!
