    I'm no wizard at pattern design, but I gave it a shot. Maybe someone much more experienced can improve on the design.

    Any how, here's my interpretation of the quilt block (four of these would make the pinwheel):

    Thanks for the pattern. What size is the grid you used...1/2", 1", etc?

    The individual squares on the graph paper represent 1/2 inch (my graph paper didn't allow me to make it any bigger LOL). Also note, there is no seam allowance for the outside edges in my drawing, so if you attempt it, be sure to factor that in and do a sample block first.

    Would love to know how it turns out if anyone gives it a shot!

    Ok, I decided to test my design. Overall I think I did a good job. Only did two of the blocks, so it's half the star currently, but then realized my mistake. I neglected to make the pattern a mirror image of the block, so my blades are going backwards.

    I do like this design, so will re-do the pattern (mirrored imaged) and give it a go for a lap quilt.
