here and just made me want to make one like it. I love it and the fabric here is ginger blossom by Sandi Henderson.
I pieced my pinwheels using 5" squares, two white and two coloured for each pinwheel. I used a tutorial on youtube for instructions. I saw a tutorial for using two squares and sewing around all four sides to generate four pairs of half square triangles by cutting diagonally corner to corner twice. I am glad I didn't do that as I had enough distortion the way I did it. Doing it the other way would have lead to even more seams on the cross than I had which means it will all be more stretchy and easy to deform.
Have a great weekend!
