What was I thinking??!!

Here are 5 pinwheel blocks

Now look closely and please ignore the bits and pieces of snippets on the blocks

Not one stinking block has decent points!  I pride myself on being a decent piecer.  This is deplorable!  And I am not even going to say anything about the block below!  I love pinwheel blocks and every time I make them they turn out like this.
This one WILL be ripped apart!

I can rip every one of these apart (and I am giving that some serious consideration) but I am also thinking about a raw edge applique of a circle over each point and then spiral quilting from the center of each block.

What do you think?


  1. I have had the same experience - some times I feel I have not learned a thing in all the sewing I had done.

    Let it be - shows we are not perfect...if you want perfect call upon the Lord!

  2. you aren't the only one!

    I love the idea of the appliqued circle.

  3. Are you pressing all your seams open? I find that the points come out much better with the seams all pressed open.

  4. Oh my! You make me feel like such an amature! :-p

  5. You are way too crazy about this the only one I saw that was bad was the one you said you were going to rip out. I have to agree with quilting in the rain, I must be an amateur even though I have been quilting almost 30 years.
