This month's Block Lotto in one of my online groups features a "Buddhist pinwheel" block. It is supposed to end up at 12" square and use dark, medium, medium-light, and light fabrics in quarter-square triangles arranged a particular way. This makes a 9" square that has a 1.5" border all the way around. I decided to make two blocks, keep the worst one and send the other to Tricia, this month's "winner." My block will go into the sampler I'm making with a navy blue background.
Finishing these brought quite a good feeling of accomplishment because there seemed no shortcut method to arranging the colors. Each segment had to be carefully laid out. Still, it turned out quite good if I do say so myself! But I can't imagine ever doing a whole quilt!
