    OK Who is going to join me the end of January and make pinwheels?

    I am stealing this idea from the 9 Patch Project, hope no one minds.

    Just recently someone showed how to make pinwheels buy sewing around the four edges of a square and cutting diagonially twice = 4 triangle squares=ONE pinwheel block.

    How about 3 months? Feb 1st - April 30th = 79 pinwheel blocks.

    A GREAT use for all those charm packs to choose from.

    Could you show this or explain in greater detail?

    I will be using 5" charm squares and will have to make one up to determine the size.
    This not a swap, they are your blocks so they can be any size you want:)

    Off to make my calendar (Yes, I bought next years already) :lol:

    I saw this method and it sounded like fun-will be something to look forward to in February-all my current projects should be done-Christmas and birthdays done so this will be a great "next" project!

    In the 9-patch project the goal was to make one block a day. They posted off and on the completed blocks for people to see. The blocks are yours and you put them together the way you want to and then post completed pictures. This way people get to see all of the creative ways that people have for making the completed quilts. I think this will run about the same way, but I don't think it has been written up yet.
