    I just finished my second quilt with pinwheels in them! Check out pinwheel Panache thread posted earlier today to see the latest.

    I found that lining them up and pinning, pinning, pinning, hold your breath while you sew and pray. jk - almost

    But do line them up seam to seam, pin in place, sew slowly.

    Put a pic up and I may be able to see where your not hitting it on the mark.

    PM me if you wish, I'll help you through it.

    I learned a fast way to do pinwheels. You put two squares right sides together and sew a quarter inch all around the perimeter. Then you cut it in half on the diagonal and you get 2 half squares that you can turn and sew into a pinwheel. Look for the seam where the point is cut and pin at that point. Seems to be a good guide for me. That might not be really clear but I will try to find the link to the youtube video.
