I chose to make the Double Pinwheel Block from McCalls.
I think it’s a fun block, that isn’t seen very much around the inter webs right now. It’s one of those classic blocks that can be modernized with fabric choices. The only downside of the block is using the construction directions from McCalls there are a gazillion bias edges. All you can do is starch like crazy and hope for the best.
Sarah requested aqua, lime, cobalt, and grey on a text or low volume background.
Christina requested sea foam green, pale turquoise, pale gold, champagne, pearl white, and kona white background.
Cinda requested aqua/turquoise, orange, yellow, and grey with a white or low volume background.
Dawn requested red, turquoise, aqua and pink with a white background.
Brandy requested purple and aqua with grey or low volume background.
I continued with my real world red and white theme.

I love your double pinwheel blocks, Heather! They have a modern feel to them and your fabrics are awesome!
Don’t these look great in all those different fabrics!
love those pinwheels…they never get old. great fabric too
Love these classic blocks, and I’m majorly impressed by your mad swap skills.
These are great, Heather. I especially like the one Cinda requested – not colors I’d have ever thought to pair, but they look neat together!
Very colorful and fun blocks! Nice work!
