One step closer.

Squaring up.  It's boring. It takes too long.  It reminds me that my piecing wasn't perfect.  I'm not a perfectionist so if I have to square up, you know the piecing is rough.  Oh well!  Here are my 45 pinwheel blocks.  I just circled each one using 2 and a half inch strips.         

Ignore the pink stuff in the top left.  It's some gauzy stuff that was wrapped around some Valentine flowers I got last year.  I'm saving it for something artsy.  I don't know what, probably a mini quilt, maybe for AAQI. 

I started running out of strips so I had to circle some of the pinwheels with a mix. 

I don't think it is very noticeable and anyway, it adds interest.        
So I have 45 blocks that are 9.25 inches square.  I guess I'll set them 5 blocks by 9 blocks unless anyone has a better idea.  All suggestions welcome.  Gotta go to work now so have a great day!


  1. What was your opinion of the 1/2 square technique? Any trouble with the bias edges?
