    That is so much fun! This will be a great demo for guild to start a pinwheel exchange. I'm going to order all my charms from Missouri Quilt Co. too.

    Thanks so much for sharing this tute....I think it's great, especially if you need to make alot of 1/2 square triangles, not just for pinwheels, but ANY 1/2 square triangle pattern.

    I tried the sample Jenny showed on the uTube video and I screwed up royally. The pieces did not come up the same size. I don't know what I did, but when I tried to sew the pieces together, I could not match the seams correctly. Any suggestions? Three came out okay, one was too short.

    Boy that was terrific, sew easy! :-)
    Then I got lost in some new FMQ videos and subscribed to this site plus another FMQ site. Was in a time warp for a half hour. LOL :lol:

    WOW and double WOW. I will never dread HST's again. Now if I can just remember this until I get to the sewing machine.

    Thanks so much for the tute and the website. Can't wait to see what else they have.

    I tried it last night and made several in different sizes in no time at all! I made the tops for several pot holders in 30 minutes. Love it!

    Gilla,
    It sounds like one of your seam allowances was off or the
    ruler may have slipped when you were cutting after sewing.
