    Here's a runner that I decided to do despite the fact that the snow is still covering everything here... anyone else tired of winter yet? I hear it is a North America complaint this year, not just here in Northeastern Canada.

    I'll finish the binding tonight while I keep hubby company in front of the TV! LOL. I love the way the pinwheels seem to be curving and waving in the wind!

    I can't offer the pattern to anyone, cuz I saw the runner on the net and drafted out the pattern on graph paper. But for anyone who is so inclined, the entire runner is done in 2 1/2 squares with 1 1/2 squares sewn to the corners to make the pinwheels.

    It is called Pinwheel Puzzle. The pattern is available from www.quiltbus.com

    And here are two close ups of the pinwheels so you can see how I added a
    1 1/2" square to the 2 1/2" to make little corners.
