    Here's my magic pinwheels that seems similar to the new pinwheel templates that are so popular now.
    I found a charm pack at Walmart to test this out. I used 25 charms (5 per row) and added a 3" border.
    I put clear tape on my ruler and traced the lines from the instruction sheet.

    This is the first time I've posted with multiple pics.....I'm hoping everything shows up ok

    This is how I did my template.

    I'd like more variation, but didn't want to overthink this test!

    Great idea for the template...do you have much fabric waste using this method?

    I love this method. I have always wanted to try a tessellation but haven't ever figured it out yet.

    The extra squares (in the 2nd pic) are about 2-1/2 inches. Big enough to use in the border, or for another project.

    Oh my that will be pretty but the thrifty side of me is cringing at the waste! I know. breathe deep.. exhale.. lol

    That looks like it would be really fun to make. I have a flip flop block that you can do that kind of stuff with and I have yet to use it - had to have it, couldn't live without it.... I really need to break that baby out and use it one of these days...

    I am really looking forward to seeing your finished quilt! It's going to be so pretty!
