Your points are pointy and your stripes are straight. I wouldn't have guessed you are a beginner! Keep learning and we look forward to seeing more.

If you make blocks listed as "traditional" then they are in the public domain and do not need attribution. There are hundreds of those.

Congratulations on a pretty quilt block! The pinwheel is my all time favorite block. You are doing a fantastic job. There are so many great resources online to help you learn to quilt. We all learn from our mistakes throughout the quilting journey. I call each quilt I make an adventure.

One of my favorite online resources for learning about quilting aside from this wonderful quilting board is:

Enjoy your quilting adventures and show us more of your lovely blocks!

Very nice! Lately Iíve been using a touch of fabric glue to hold the pieces together at the end. I use the pink Sewline glue pen. I originally got it to glue baste my pieces for English paper piecing, but Iím finding it works for a lot of things!

You are doing so good as a beginner quilter. Nothing I made as a beginner looked as good as yours. Keep on sewing!

Here's a great, easy way that Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Company makes pinwheels. It's really fast & easy.

Thanks Everyone. I appreciate your kind words.

I decided to do another kind of block.today. This time it is called a "Double Star". I got one of the seams slightly out of alignment on this one, so the right hand part is a little out of whack.

This seems to be another fairly easy block to make. It just takes work and patience, and a steady hand on the sewing machine.
