    These are the easy pinwheels using the charm pack where you place the dark and the light colored charms right sides together and sew all the way around and then cut twice on the diagonal
    and you get your half square triangles.
    I'm not too happy with the way my camera took these photos, some of the green's look too bright. These are reversable placemats for my Sister for christmas. ( I'm starting my gift's earlier this year.
    Thankyou for looking, Brenda

    Those are awesome! I think you are inspiring me to finish up the craft room organization (I promised to do that before I go back in there to sew) and make some placemats! Those are fantastic!

    Thanks for the pictures; they're very pretty. I just recently read about that method of making pinwheels and will be trying it soon. I have your mitten fabric and liked seeing it in combination with others. Really nice job.

    These look great. I'm glad you posted this, I've been wanting to try this technique.

    Thankyou they were alot of fun to make. I'm not much of a pin wheel person but I do like how they came together so quickly. Thank's for looking.
