    Wow! This is a great tutorial, Jade! Aren't you the clever one for coming up with this idea. You're right, the fabrics are luscious. I wouldn't have chosen them just from what I saw online - they seemed to be a little bit drab - but in this block they are show-stoppers! Thanks! And it just goes to prove that with fabrics, anyway, what you see isn't always what you get.

    Oh, darn, here is another great idea for a quilt. There are so many floating around up there that I'm having a hard time deciding what to do next! Thanks for your tutorial. Love it.

    HI THIS A VERY INTERESTING BLOCK.SO I HAD TO TRY IT. GREAT BLOCK.BUT I'M A CONTROL FREEK. SO I TOOK 2 MATCHING DARK SQUARES AND 2 MATCHING LIGHT SQUARES AND SEWED THEM BY DRAWING A LINE FROM CORNER TO CORNER AND STICHING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE MARK AND CUT APART TO MAKE 4 HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES AND THEN SEWED THESE TOGETHER TO MAKE MY SQUARE.THIS WAY ALL MY PINWHEELS IN ALL MY BLOCKS GO THE SAME WAY.

    Hi,
    I was just looking through the tutorials I'd saved and this was one of them. Your design still dazzles me! By chance do you have a few of these blocks put together into a top that you'd be able to share a picture of? I'd love to see what they create when c ombined. This is very cool.

    That is really cool. Now you have to think of a name for your new block. I also have several charm packs and will try this over the weekend. Thanks for a great new block.

    Thanks for the terrific idea. Love your block.

    Has anyone done a scrap one yet, please show a picture if you have. I'm very curious what it would look like.

    I'd like to try doing a bunch of squares as shown but waiting before doing the last sewing together step. Then mix and matching the parts so it would look scrappy.

    I really enjoyed trying this block. Here is mine. I made 1 3/4" cuts instead of the 1 1/4" cuts.

    Thank you for this tute. I refer to it all the time and have made bunches of tops with your help for Project Linus and some gifts.

    Have you made a finished quilt top using these blocks?? We have tried and found that we loose the double pinwheel effect when we put them together. We can make two double pinwheel quilt tops,or use sashing and have some interesting results, but would love to see what you have come up with.

    Very nice - I'm going to try 1ū" cuts, to see the difference. Thanks for sharing.
