    Can't find it, must have been in a magazine somewhere. Others are here with very good results!

    I must not be understanding this pattern,I do see the pinwheels but why worry with them?I would strip set the checkerboard block (one light one color)using 5 strips and(turn each 1/4 turn befor I sewed the hst )on point and do a half square triangle( one light and one dark) on all 4 sides you can see they are set with the lights and darks arranged to form the pinwheels, then add a 3 or so inch strip with corner block then 2 colored piano keys with corner block and another strip with corner blocks would this not work? I would have 20 blocks. Maybe I would have a mess but...

    I would sew the blocks in straight rows as we look at the pattern in lieu of the 25 patch block and pinwheel block version and set in diagonal rows (IMHO). Like the comment just above, doing the 25 patch block, then sewing the 2 HST (made like the Boston block for an easier way) to each corner, sounds more my style of sewing the block. Your quilt will be interesting and will look forward to a pic of your final work.

    oops, that's 25 patch, not 16. Remember to cut the pinwheel triangles as quarter square triangles.

    our guild made one for our raffle quilt at one of our shows and it was called Patches&Pinwheels. The pattern was in a magazine. Some members made the patches block and others made the pinwheels. It was a beautiful quilt .
