What materials did you use? Many batik fat quarters cut into 9" squares which left a 4 x 18" strip per fat quarter. The strips I sewed into diagonal bias binding.

What are you most proud of? That I pieced it and then also quilted it myself.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you square up your half square triangles before you put them into pinwheels.

I'm glad to hear it. I've been quilting for a long time and it was still extremely informative for me.

love this version of this pattern, been looking at it for my niece's quilt and this has really inspired me, lovely piece!

Thank you and have fun with it! Don't forget to sew the corners a half inch apart when you sew them on so that you have half square triangles for another project of for a border or something like that.

This is done beautifully!!!!! I'm looking for something to do around a panel, I may adopt this.

Thank you, the technique is super simple. I originally fell in love with the same block made into X's and O's, but the colors I used in the blocks didn't lend themselves to randomness (in my mind, anyway).

Thank you so much, I loved the bright colors also. If you look at the pinwheel quilt you will see what I did with the corners of the X and O blocks.
