Stars and pinwheels............

I cut 6 sets of triangles and squares from the white/black prints and sewed 2 more blocks.
I decided to put the umbrella fabric up on a design wall and pin some of the pinwheel blocks over it.  I love how busy it is!!  I have 21 pinwheel blocks to use in this quilt.  I'll probably have to make a few more.

I love that umbrella fabric with the pinwheels. It almost seems like they're spinning. It's wonderful!
The black and white with the stars is pretty too!

Dazzling Umbrella fabric ! ... another awesome design in the works for sure.

Your sparkling triangle stars are just as awesome. But talk about 'thunder and lightening' (*._,*) Umbrella really is a show stopper !

Am I the only one who thinks the pinwheels are lost in the umbrella fabric? They are not popping out for me.
