    Of course it is OK! There are no rules in quilting!!! What is pleasing to your eye is all that matters. Please post a pic when it is complete I would love to see it.

    Try to look for similar blocks. What I mean is put a 4 patch with another 4 patch or 8 patch. A pin wheel is a 4 patch and will bisect your 9 patch.

    Get out your graph paper and try to draw it out, it doens not match and looks jarring.

    A snowball would look great with your 9 patches, you can adjust the angle so that everything comes together, as you want.

    I like the idea :D:D:D
    Here is a quick work up I did in EQ... I changed the lights around so you could see a couple of different looks :wink:
    I hope this is the same pinwheel block that you were talking about :D

    Anna, could you do that with a snowball and a 9 patch? I came up with that off the top of my head and would like to see how it looks!
