    You're on your way! Those blocks look great as they are. Nice pinwheels! Thanks for showing us your progress.

    Yes there are pin wheels also there is hour glasses and if I put the triangles on the corners it will be even better hour glasses with the pin wheels. Originally I wanted to do a navy themed quilt but decided he has had enough navy. Jenny’s out of time hour glass quilt inspired me, what says retirement more than out of time. I haven’t been back to sewing since the hour or so on Sunday. Maybe tomorrow after work. I might cut and press all of my sewn squares tonight. Supposed to be 75 degrees tomorrow in eastern North Carolina. I like to sew with the natural sunlight. My garage lighting is lacking. I find quilting a lot li manfacturing. Each process in independent from the other. In the end end all processes must be with in tolerance to assemble the product.
    Im satisfied with the blocks I have so far. I can see how this could get catawampus really quick during assembly.
    Again thanks for all the information and support this forum is awesome

    I'm so fascinated and by all this Quilt enthusiasm and the intricacy of it all! Quilts are so strange to me, they are almost non existant in France (in the American form, we do have quilted blankets but I won't insult you by comparing a quilted blanket with the amazing artwork you create) I do not even think I have seen an American Quilt in real life!

    Ha Ha. Not insulted here. I’m just learning this craft. I think it really originated with poor people putting scraps together to keep warm.

    I was in Lorient France about 20 years ago working for the French Navy. I have to say it was an awesome experience to sit on the beaches of Brittany and watch the sun set. It was almost impossible to buy my own beer in a pub or disco. The French working class gave so much appreciation to American working class.
