Yes, the pinwheel block offers a rewarding look with scraps because of the blades and triangles! Since you like pinwheels so much and love to see others' works, you really need to look at my first Pinwheel quilt I posted. It too has a great scrappy look and I carefully selected fabrics for that mini using lots of vintage fabrics that were my favorites. Here's the link to the first Pinwheel quilt called Pinwheel Chaos:Originally Posted by gingerella
Yes, the fact that the requisite red is missing, gives it an interesting look. I personally love the "large hearth" of the 2.5" ctr. rather than the typical little red square. The most fun is just using what I have on hand, slicing the end off and adding another piece without being careful the logs are all the same! I just love this quick way of assembling a log cabin style block.
I'm getting ready to do another Pinwheel but this time I won't paper piece it like I did with this one, but I will use the "lay it on top of each other" method to do the half-split half-square triangles. Let me know if you need this method. Will be glad to show you how it's done. It will make piecing a Pinwheel Quilt a piece of cake. And yes, the value placement is so much fun with this block!
Thank you soooo very much, gingerella, and I look forward to seeing your Pinwheel quilts one day! I hope you are inspired after seeing my little minis!
