What was your inspiration?
I had made a pinwheel similar to this for myself and wanted a quick project to make to add to a baby basket for a silent auction. I am also making other items to include in the basket.
What are you most proud of?
How the colors came together in the end. It looked too busy as I was laying out the blocks and added the purple piping around the blocks which made all the difference.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It is a simple project to do. All you need for a pattern is the instructions for making a pinwheel using 1/2 triangle squares (HTS) and the knowledge of strip sewing for the border.
