Design Wall Monday 3/25/13

First, giveaway still open. See last Thursday's post.  Next, posting early again as I have an all day date with Alan tomorrow and Tuesday. Here are some sample blocks I made to test the technique for making pinwheels for DGD's quilt.  This will be a D9P called Pinwheel Twist.  I saw it on Madame Samm's Sew Quilt by guest blogger, Jennie, of Clover & Violet.  It's a pretty neat trick.  You put two squares right sides together, then sew a 1/4" seam on all four sides.  Then you cut the unit diagonally twice and assemble your pinwheel.  Here are my two sample blocks (won't go in the quilt - off to orphan block pile) and some of the squares and fabric for her quilt.
 
What are you working on?  This will be my NewFO for March.  I'm linking over to Judy's Patchwork Times and Lyn's BOMs Away!

Neat trick is right! You know how I am with directions so I won't pretend to understand it....giggle.

Pretty pinwheels :) I just pulled out a NewFO for March, too.
Thanks for sharing this! I've been gone so much lately and missed it on Mdm Samm's blog! What a cute design idea!!!
