What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay attention to the directions, LOL! The paper pieces are numbered but I wasn't paying attention and reversed one of the blocks but I like it nonetheless!

You could make an interesting quilt by making a bunch of different blocks, each with one mistake - I think if it was scrappy-style with lots of red/white/grey fabrics it would look really great!

Hubbie thinks it's too old fashioned so making an entire quilt is a no-go.

Tholz; my hubby has learned not to make those types of comments, usually when he did, I did the quilt my way any how and he ended up eating his words because he liked it. Makes a wife feel good to see her husband eat crow once in a great while! Married 39 years and loving it. Janjo in Reno

I love those fun fabrics together - and thanks for posting your little mistake, too! - It's good for everyone to know that none of us is perfect, and we DO learn from our mistakes!

Ha Ha - The mistake makes it a wonky PP Pinwheel. I like it!
