This is great - love it. Saw a reg. pinwheel easy don't know if it was here.

Take squares - right sides together.
Sew all around the squares
Cut in diagonal - then there will be 2 diag.
Cut those in half
Fold out press and waa laa. You have 4 pinwheels.

I tried a 'sample' and I used 4.5" squares which made up to measure a block that is 8.25". Turned out really cute! Now I want to make an entire quilt out of it.

That's really cute! I love how it looks like the folded paper pinwheels I made when I was a kid.
