My Block

Here's the block I made up this morning. I guess I should have done one up earlier to make sure all the bugs were out. Jenny was wondering what the center pinwheel block measured, it should measure 6 1/2 inches square.  This block came out at 12 1/2" so it will be a 12" finished block.  I also think that the instruction have you cut an extra square to make  1/2 square triangles, I ended up with some that I didn't use but I was interrupted many times this morning, so I could have cut something twice and not realized it.  If you look closely at the white background you will see that I did not use a solid white, I just grabbed some scraps from my stash and used some white on white which is okay with me if you want to.  I hope this clears up any confusion or frustration. Let me know if it hasn't and I'll try to help you out.
