    I really like the snowballed version and think the black (or at least the same color throughout) unifies the quilt. It'll be a lovely quilt when finished.

    Oh yes, do add the black blocks. They will make your quilt look awesome.

    I like the black snowball effect. It adds even more interest with a nice secondary pattern.

    However, I am like BTiny36 ... and find the black a bit strong in that it pulls my eyes to them, and less focus to the pinwheels. If it were me, I think I would try a TOT or mottled charcoal, or something similar.

    I would definitely stick to one fabric, so that the scrappy pinwheels can remain the superstars of the quilt!

    I too like the black corners. Thanks for posting this quilt. I have been trying to find something that looks like a prop on an old airplane and I think this block will work! THANKS.

    I really like the diamonds. It gives it a little something extra.
