    I would call them wedges and boy, would I ever love to inherit a bunch of them already cut.

    I was thinking pinwheels, as well. Please let us know what you do with them!

    Looks like the beginning of a crazy quilt to me.

    I don't have a wide ranging experience with different types of quilts. Can anyone suggest what the original owner's intent might have been with these?

These would be cute worked into a quilt back, too.

    Looking good!

    I am making this quilt, a totally scrappy charm from darks & lights, no two fabrics the same. You will enjoy making this, it is sew easy.

    I am having fun with these blocks. I did mess up the first two because I was trimming the individual squares before I sewed the whole thing together. I'm tired of resizing photos for the QB plus I'm never too sure what order they are going to post, so I put a photo update on Flickr with comments to show what I messed up and how I corrected. Hope you like them.

    My first thought was a Tumbler block. The pin wheel looks doable too, but for the pinwheel do the blades need to be all the same fabric? Looks that way to me. Just a thought.
