I didn't get much sewing done because I had an oven marathon. I started out with the lowest temperature and first made Chex mix at 250*, then shortbread cookies at 300*, next frosted creams at 350* and finished with muffins with dried cranberry pieces at 400*. I started at 4:30 and finished at 7:30.
I decided to play with the pieces before I sewed 2 blocks. The first was the pinwheels above, then I tried repeated verticals offset every other row. I think this second one might be interesting with the right fabrics.
Then I did one pinwheel with border. This could have every other block turned a quarter turn or a positive/negative fabric position option laid out as alternating blocks.
Then I took the 2 completed blocks to the design wall and changed position of every other row to make a vertical zig zag. It is time to move the blocks to a double design wall before I add more blocks later this evening.
