Fred, it's not hard at all. Very easy and fun! I'm gonna try one where I vary my background squares and the size of my pinwheels. EX: 6" square for background and a 4" square for the pinwheel. I think it can be done because you're gonna fold the 4" square into a triangle and lay it on the corner of the 6" square anyway. Should be interesting.

Still needs one more border, but here's how mine has turned out! I decided not to use batting in this though...I might suggest others use bigger blocks and less of them if you're making a baby or quilt for a small child because this puppy is HEAVY! I'm just going to back it with minky I think. :)

Here it is October 26th of 2011. I love these pinwheels that were shared today. Thanks so much for sharing a block with so much potential. I wonder where to begin?

Thank you SO much. Many of us have been trying to figure out the technique.
