How Many Pinwheels?
So I started on a new quilt. Love the colors, all civil war reproduction prints and colors; blacks, tans, mustards, and deep reds. Found the quilt in a magazine, decided it would be perfect. Took a count, needed 100 pinwheels. Ok, got started. Cut all the dark blocks, ran out of room on my desk, so only cut about half the tan blocks. Somehow, in my "I can't remember a damn thing" brain, I was surprised when I finished with the tan blocks that I had cut. Wow, that was fast. I'm already done. And I wonder, why do I have so many dark blocks left over. Pull out the pattern...That's odd. Oh yeah, I need 100 pinwheels, not 50. How in the world did I forget that? Otherwise, why would I have cut out 100 dark blocks? And I still need to cut out 150 more tan blocks. It is sad when your brain takes a break and forgets to tell you.
