Pinwheel Phase

My friend, Rose Marie, claims that she’s been in a “Pinwheel Phase” lately. She’s made several pinwheel quilts, my favorite of which is this one:

Not only has she been in a pinwheel phase, but she’s decided to drag the entire QQB in on it with her. When the QQB met last December, she gave us all instructions to return to the next meeting with 36 4″ pinwheel blocks in dark, sort of “Kansas Troubles-like” colors. Like sheep, we all just did as we were told, and we all showed up with our pinwheel blocks in hand at the April QQB meeting.

Here are the ones I made:

While we were at the meeting, Rose Marie mixed them all up, divided them back out, and handed us each back a different batch of 36 4″ pinwheels, with instructions for what we’re to do next with them. 

Here’s the batch I received back:

Our job at this point was to report back at the next meeting with a next step of some sort finished, and receive a third set of instructions for possibilities for finishing. We are also allowed to ditch her entire idea and do whatever we want with the pinwheels, too. At this point, I’ve waffled but good for quite awhile, and I still have not decided what I want to do with my pinwheels. The next meeting is May 6 — that doesn’t leave me much time to decide . . . oh, the pressure!
