    First try at pinwheels....

    When I needed a break from quilting today I decided to try a pinwheel block. I have a box of charms from other projects and started sewing some together. I really like the red and yellow ones...I had never thought of using red and yellow together...but it worked. The green in the top one should have either been a different shade or darker. But at least I know I can make pinwheels....that resemble pinwheels.

    Great job! What were you worried about? Pinwheels really are my favorite blocks. They always come out cheerful.

      Thanks...I guess I was worried that I couldn't get the points to match up in the center. I am saving all my 'orphan' blocks for a quilt...that should be quite a hodgepodge of blocks.

        Once you put a bunch of pinwheels together into a quilt, no one can see whether all the points match or not. At least I hope not for my sake!

          You did well, Shirley. I like the red and yellow together, also.

            They look great. I'm not sure I could get them to line up right.

                Love red and yellow together. Someone sent a red and yellow lady bug quilt for the PICU last year. I cannot believe you haven't done pinwheels. Yours are lovely.

                  Thanks I can't believe I haven't done pinwheels either, I guess they just looked more difficult to put together than they are. I will be making something with pinwheels...just don't know what yet.

                    pinwheels make great border accents, or corner blocks, or cornerstones in sashing, or--or--or. So many possibilities. Yours are looking good.

                      They look terrific! Did you swirl them? I have to ask since I'm gonna try that next hehe.
