I love this variation of the pinwheel block. The addition of the 3 half square triangles to the corners of the traditional pinwheel makes this so special and truly makes it look like a Dutch pinwheel. I would probably use cool blue colors for my quilt, but hey, that's me! What colors would you use to make this quilt?

I want to print the directions but the pattern directions wont come up
