Pinwheels

I saw this video on another blog I read. It is from Bailey Girl Five's blog. The video shows you how to make four half square triangle blocks that you can turn into a pinwheel block without sewing on the diagonal. It is pretty cool and may be just the ticket for me to turn a charm pack I won into a pinwheel quilt.

Check it out.

Stop it! Honestly, how do some people figure out these awesome strategies?! I can't figure it out. I wonder what the method of calculating how big of squares you need to start with to you need to come out with a certain sized pinwheel...

She does make a good point about the bias edges being on the outsides of the block... (I didn't think of it until she mentioned it.)

This is a great way to make half-square triangle squares. And I love pinwheel quilts. I'm going to try to remember this.
