What a versatile pattern! Make it sweet with medium value reproduction fabrics and a white background, or bold with jewel tones and a gray or black background. The pattern includes a half-square triangle (hst) paper template that yields 8 hst's in a flash, enough for 2 pinwheels. Be organized with your pinwheel colors, or make every blade scrappy - you get to pick. I had read a fairly vague, verbal description of a quilt that had been successful as a guild fund-raiser, and this is what I think was being described. Our guild made this quilt as a group, with everyone digging in their stash for medium value, small print fabric, and using the template. So sweet.
