Josh's Wiggly Lines in a Pinwheel Block

Josh here for my last block in the Pinwheel series.

I am definitely getting more comfortable making curves and wiggly lines. I liked this block because it's great to work from the center out, opposed to the usual where we start on the borders and make our way in. And speaking of edges, the corners were the only area of this block that gave me any issue.

Leah recommended adding an inch or two of scrap fabric to the perimeter of the block helps let you maneuver around the edges. I have tried this technique and I can absolutely say this helps and makes your life so much easier when you're working around the corners, especially when you're stitching in detail.

Let's go quilt!
