Pinwheel for a Pinhead

Friday's Block Party is called Pinwheel. It is a small one - only 8 inches square. I did not follow the instructions on Quilter's Cache. But then, I never do. I used half square triangles instead. As I was cutting the pieces for the centre, I thought, Duh! (slap up the side of the head) Instead of cutting four 2 1/2 inch squares, I could have cut one 4 1/2 inch square. Maybe I will try to make this one again.

But not today. It's too nice outside and tomorrow we are going to get rain. So off I go!

Pretty block, Hetty. Hope you continue to have many sunshine filled days. Watch out for trippy objects! ;)

Go out in the sunshine and your garden. It always is inspiring. I like the pinwheel block. But I have to disagree with the pinhead remark. I don't ever see you or anyone being creative as being a pinhead... even if you do realize a different way you should have tried. At least you are trying...

I love your pinwheel block. It's
so beautiful, the color and the design. If I ever get a chance to
do pinwheel, I 'd prefer the size
4 1/2 inch square, too.

Yes.. but I still like the way the four 2" blocks look in the middle. Really sweet block.
So you must be out having a grand time in the flower beds! :-) The weather is gorgeous.
