Rethinking pinwheels



I've mentioned several times that I really love pinwheel blocks. But I have met my match with this one!

This is block #7 of my house blocks and I will admit it was the most frustrating one so far. Remember - the miniature quilts are 6 inches square.

I sewed the pinwheels on Saturday and then UN-SEWED some of them today because I didn't like the way they came out. The edges were stretching and twisting, so I am not totally happy with the centers of these. But I do believe this is as good as this one will get because I don't think I have the patience to make more of them.

The good news is that mini quilt section #8 has larger pieces and not as many of them.

  1. Well I think you did great. I really struggle with some blocks. But I will unsew or redo until
    I get them as close to right as I can. Good job.
