Funky Pinwheel

I joined the block swap on craftster this Fall.   I've always been intrigued by bees and round robins and other ways of sharing the construction of a quilt.  This seemed like a good way to get my feet wet.  After all,  how hard can it be to make three blocks of each pattern? 

These are two of my three pinwheel blocks.  The original pattern came with templates.  One of the swap partners came up with rotary cutting instructions.  Looking at the first ones, I realized I didn't exactly follow either set of instructions.  The block worked out fine in spite of that.  The second one is made with some sunpaint fabric.  I've got one more of these to go.  I think orange fabric is calling my name on that one. 


  1. Very nice blocks. These and the one from your other post! I'm just AMazed that you didn't follow instructions!
