what I ended up with.
I "won" a windmill template at my quilting group meeting. I used it to make this scrappy quilt, using animal prints. Be careful when you use this template that you be consistent with the way you cut the fabric, otherwise you will end up doing what I did and cut some going right and some going left. (Look at the blocks in the border-they are spinning differently that those in the middle section.)
This was from another Yahoo! group I belong to and it started with 6 "happy blocks" and progressed from there as a round robin.
