Happiness is a Pinwheel

When I was a child and off on a family outing to the fair, it always made me happy when I got a pinwheel. Just seeing it spin in the wind, and flipping through its colours was enchanting for me, since I have always been a lover of colour.

Pinwheels are also a favourite of quilters. Even though the word "pinwheel" does not always appear in the quilt block name, you will see their shapes frequently.  One of my favourites is the Pinwheel Star quilt block.
