A Girl is Allowed to Change Her Mind!

One wonders - does Lurline have too much time on her hands? - I wish! Anyhow, I am pretty happy with this change of heart - still Pinwheels for my Rainbow Quilt Swap Block! Saw the block and loved it and thought 'Oh, that is so much easier than making 45 Pinwheels!' - now I have only 9 to make - they are 6" square - 1 per 12" block! Would not have a clue what the block is called - if anyone can enlighten me, please do!

One Pinwheel Block and 4 surrounding blocks - I guess this is how it is done - works for me, and I really like the block, so that's it!

Also, I have been playing with Birdie-Birdie modification - body and tail all in one - I like her! Hopefully tomorrow she will have wings and a nest!
I haven't forgotten about the Pinwheel Mini-tutorial I promised - all pics have been taken and quite a few hints to pass on to make perfect pinwheels!
The Littlies are coming to me tomorrow afternoon to sleep over for the night - Mum and Dad out partying - good on them - we are all here for a good time, not a long time!
Then Sunday, we collect baby Saskia, the new member to our family - a Ragdoll Kitten! No, she won't be living with me - she will belong to Danielle, Adrian, Heidi and Byron! Though I wish she was mine!
Happy weekend everyone - hugs♥
PS - still have lots of Birthday Fat Quarters to show - thank you to those Girls - also, Happy Houses are arriving, thank your to those Girls!

Really like the new blocks. I saw a red and white quilt hanging in a quilt shop yesterday and fell in love with how it looked. I'm now adding a red and white one to my list of things to do!

Pretty birdie!

Well, I like the 9 patch pinwheels better, but totally understand the amount of work involved, and the other block is interesting as well. Love your choice of fabrics. Whoever gets one of your blocks will be so very lucky!

Love the bird in pink. Will he fly before Tuesday? LOL

You're so cute the way you changed up that block! I love the bird, too. Those birdies make a girl smile. And of course you know being a Ragdoll owner myself I'm excited about the new baby coming. Can't wait for photos.
