wind power

back to the Old School Saturday Sampler BOM ... this month's assignment is pinwheel blocks
simple enough, huh?!?
but...
yes, there IS always a but
the pattern calls for two pinwheel blocks ... each made with four HSTs that finish at 4.5 inches... 
and (here's the but) that would have left no room for the fairies...
so... 
i made two modified Clay's Choice blocks...
one little fairy is giving her pinwheel a twirl ... and the other little fairy is huffing and puffing for all she's worth

 here they are with last month's block...
not at all like the pattern ... but not too shabby

and here is a picture of some of the other BOMers' blocks for last month...
there are a few other rebels in the group ... do you see Auntia's dog house up there?!?

and now i'm gonna go put on a pot of water to cook some pasta... 
i shouldn't take too much credit for all its shininess - it's a self-cleaning oven ... but i DO hafta pay the electric bill
cuz there's no way i'm gonna mess up that sparkling clean oven...

Your blocks are very sweet, I love the idea of fairies! Wow - that's one gorgeous oven, that is. Having good equipment makes you cook like a Cordon Bleu chef, n'est-ce pas?

The fairies are adorable! What is the secret plan for all the blocks in this quilt??
