This "Red & White Cross" block is listed in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns as block #1415 as a Nancy Cabot pattern. Although it is not necessarily listed as a pinwheel pattern, if you color the block in a pinwheel fashion, it becomes a pinwheel. This block can show amazing variation depending on color arrangement, including using a diagonal colorway. I've tried to show many variations in the 10 quilt tops. PLUS - I'm including 3 different "color pages" for quilt tops, 2 horizontal and one on point for you to play with using colored pencils.
