Big Dipper Quilt Block

You are here:

The Big Dipper Quilt Block is an arrangement of four Quarter Square Triangles. Notice how the careful arrangement of light and dark fabrics results in a central pinwheel design.

Traditionally, the block is made from two colors of fabric, but you can still get a central pinwheel with multi-colored, scrappy choices.
