A-1 Pinwheel Gone Awry

A-1 Pinwheel Gone Awry
This block is very special to me. I remember seeing Dear Jane quilts, and not really being interested in them. Then Purl Bee, Purl Soho's blog posted about Emily's Dear Jane quilt. Emily was learning how to quilt, and decided to make a Dear Jane quilt with modern fabrics. I immediately fell in love with the idea and her gorgeous blocks. The block I loved the most was A-1 Pinwheel Gone Awry. I even tried to find the same fabric, and came close, but couldn't find the same colorway. I see this block as the reason why I started this journey, and I love how both the journey and the blocks are turning out.

The fabric is Heather Ross' Wildflowers in orange from her Lightning Bugs line. Paper pieced.
