Monday Morning Quilting Quicky – Quick and Easy 3-Dimensional Pin Wheel
It’s time for another Monday Morning Quilting Quicky! We’ll have a new video and project every other Monday throughout the summer, so be sure to catch them all!
Today, Marcia will show you how to make a Quick and Easy 3-Dimensional Pin Wheel – the perfect FAST project to bring a little summer inside. Using mostly pre-cuts and the Prairie Pointer, it could not be any easier or faster to create a table runner, wall-hanging, or even full size quilt, but it’s SO fun (and looks impressive)!
Plus, she’ll share her super secret PNQS button trick – don’t miss it!
To make this fun table runner, you’ll need:
A charm pack of your choice
Background Fabric of your choice, cut into 5.5″ squares
2.5″ strips for sashing and binding
Fabric Glue Pen (if you’re like Marcia and want to skip the pins!)

It’s time for our last block! I cut this one out quickly with my Accuquilt cutter and the 6” Qube. Many people think that with a 6” Qube, you are limited to 6” blocks, but I hope this quilt along has shown that there are many possibilities when you combine the shapes. This 12” block has over 70 pieces! The center section is a bit smaller than the other blocks so I did end up cutting the small triangles and rectangles with a ruler and rotary cutter. Here is the block all cut and ready to be sewn.
Here we are on the final block. Our time together has flown past. Ideally, slightly darker fabric for the beige choice would have provided a more floral looking block. However, in this color choice the navy takes the front stage in the design choice.
We are getting so close to finishing our blocks! I love how the pattern designer used a pinwheel block as the center of the first three blocks, and now a nine patch for the last three blocks. It is a clever way to change things around. I find that the nine patches go together quickly and I am eager to see these blocks completed.
