    Well spotted Up North!! The complexity is caused as you create a left turn and right turn pinwheel....I tell you it drove me near demented lol :D

    I have made two D9P quilts recently, its a great pattern, I found this variation on a quilting blog, and thought I would give it a try as I had the fuchsia 4" charm squares, but not enough to do anything bigger than a small lap quilt so had a rummage in my scraps and found the toning fabrics, all these fabrics have been donated from my friends here on the Quilting Board, so a big thank you to Cathy M for the fuchsia fabrics and to everyone else who donated, I couldn't have made it without ya'll :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Hey Jan....I am only too pleased to rise to the challenge of finding a way to use all the fabrics from you gals, it's great fun mixing and matching the fabs :lol: :D

    You make a 9 patch, cut across as in the d9P THEN add a contrasting square on top of each 'corner' draw a line diagonally and stitch 1/4" from it on both sides like making HST's.

    This creates two new squares from each 'corner' a clockwise HST and an anti clockwise HST........ you can now PLAY!!

    There are a number of variations, depending on how you slash it, either across the 'corner' top left to bottom right or top right to bottom left, which will give you a different style block.

    Plus I chose not to resew together the original four quarters of each block to give me more chance to mix up the fabrics over the whole top :D

    One of the pictures posted shows the quarter squares in a different layout, using a row of clockwise pinwheels and next row anti clockwise pinwheels but off set to the left by half a block which gives a secondary offset diamond and zig zag effect....but there are several pattern combo's.

    It's all down to how long you can stand twisting and turning the blocks before your brain is mashed like mine :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thanks Melissa, I 'think' I enjoyed making this one...now it's done!! :lol:

    I am trying my best to make good use of all the lovely fabrics you all donated :lol:

    I was determined I was using that trailing fuchsia for the border, and to be honest didn't plan the size in advance, just used up the 4" fuchsia charms that Cathy M sent me :D Somebody 'up there' was looking out for me as I JUST had enough and improvised with the mini pinwheel corner stones. I had to join the borders in 18" sections ( and a little 2" piece grrrrrhhhhhh!!) as it was fat quarters two of each, but the flow of the vine was going in different directions and had botch it up but I am really pleased with the effect :D

    Terri, glad you like it :D

    I needed the distraction of a mind boggling pattern, we have got all the diggers in excavating the land...you would NOT believe the mess, and to boot it poured down last night, so now we are like hippo's wallowing :lol:

    Gotta laugh!! :lol:
