    NEED ADVICE: pinwheel or plain cornerstone?

    Hello--these 17 inch embroidery blocks were done 30 years ago and I'm attempting to put them all together for a friend and make a full-size quilt. A pale yellow embroidery is used sparingly throughout the blocks which you probably can't see and I am using a thin yellow border next to the larger green border.

    QUESTION: What looks better for the cornerstones?: yellow/white 3 inch pinwheels or just plain white squares? Any advice is appreciated. Need to use these colors since person already picked them out. Thanks!

    I like the plain white. If pinwheels were darker it would add something but they seem too pale.

    I prefer the white. The embroidered blocks are the focus points and should remain so. Just my opinion.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Are you using the yellow that is on the side with about that width of border showing? If so, I think I'd do the cornerstones as one yellow piece.
