    You can always take a larger one and decrease the size before you print the pattern.

    You can make a larger one and cut it down.

    What kind of pinwheel? Would a 3" block made up of 1.5" half square triangles arranged as a simple pinwheel work? Like this: http://www.fvqg.org/99archiv/0002.htm Only you would cut 2 1 7/8 inch squares instead of the 4 7/8.

    I think four 2" hst units will end up being 3.5" pinwheels unfinished, or 3" finished pinwheel blocks.
