    For the quilting bee I'm in, the recipient wanted pinwheels inside log cabins. For some odd reason, log cabins have intimidated me so this was an excellent opportunity for me to get past that and just do it!

    They aren't perfect, but I'm proud that I did it and got past my fear.

    Those are pretty. I have done log cabins but the pinwheel in the middle is so cool. Great job.

    one of the good reasons for doing exchanges is that it takes you out of your comfort zone and you try new things...you did a great job!!!!

    Exactly! I needed to be pushed a bit and found a bee at just the right time. I'm really excited to try more blocks.

    Wonderful blocks. I never thought to put pinwheels in a log cabin B4 but I sure like it.
