Disappearing Pinwheel Block


SQUIRREL!  Yep, that is me as soon as I read Paulette's blog post.  I watched the Missouri Star Tutorial on her technique of making a Disappearing Nine Patch block, went back to Paulette's blog post to see another version on another blog and was off and sewing!

I chose not to piece the Missouri Star tutorial way and used 4.5" squares to start so my blocks are small.  Once I cut my pinwheel block into in nine equal pieces and assembled to look like this I decided to mix them up and made more blocks in a jiffy!
I've now rearranged the center pinwheels to give these blocks more of a scrappy look.
