Trend Tuesday::Pinwheels

by heatherkp

Here is another fun trend I’ve seen popping up all over.  With it’s historic roots in quilt patterns and the fun paper pinwheels that kids play with this design motif is so cheerful.

There are so many variations on this motif (like the Chevron’s) and there is probably a style of pinwheel that would make almost everyone happy.  It’s geometric and linear, can be more about form or linework or color depending on how it is rendered.  Not to mention the 3 dimensional versatility that can be used in many materials such as paper, fabric and other materials used for building (plastic composites, metals etc).

Have you ever made a paper pinwheel?  Don’t you love the childlike spirit invoked by this little motif?
