I am continuing to make good progress on the making quilts aspect of this challenge - but I have weakened and bought some special fabrics for my son's quilt. (When this is done it will of course not count in this challenge). I am now up to 32.
The pin wheels in this quilt are made from the "discarded" triangles in the outer blocks. I used a 4.5" x 2.5" rectangle and a 2.5" square for each section of the outer block. After I matched the square to one end of the rectangle, I sewed on line along the diagonal and a 2nd line 3/8" further out before cutting off the triangles. I like to do this as it the bias is less likely to stretch. If you try this block - note that the direction of the white triangle is different on the red and blue pieces... My orientation errors will go a considerable way to making another quilt!!!!
