For August, my Stash Bee queen requested a wonky pinwheel block. By chain sewing, the block came together surprisingly quickly, and I had a lot of fun raiding my ever growing scrap bin for the colored strips.
As I was digging through my overflowing scrap bin, it became evident that it will need to be tamed in the future. I am thinking that once the Stash Bee is over for this year, it will be time to tackle the mountain.
Heather put together a great tutorial for the Wonky Pinwheel Block (which finishes at 12-inches square), if you are interested. I am going to enjoy seeing how these scrappy, wonky blocks come together for her!

I looked at Heather’s directions and see she suggests no batiks. Most of my scrappy strips are batiks, will that matter? Yours is so bright and cheery.
I love your block! There are two traditional blocks that I have an almost physical aversion to: the churndash and the pinwheel block. So it’s safe to say your block is sort of therapeutic to me!
I especially like the -to me- wink of the scissors at the “exit” of the block!
What a fun block! I like the wonkiness of it. Her quilt is going to look amazing with blocks made from so many scrap pieces. Thanks for the link to the tutorial!
that looks like such a fun block to make. My scraps are not int he best control these days – I’m hoping a few 1 hr baskets will help me sort them out!
This is really cute! I will have to save that tutorial.
Love how those scraps came together.
What an interesting block. I think it would make a great all over scrappy quilt. Looking at all the little bits of fabrics in the block…I think I might like to raid your scrap bin too 🙂
What a clever choice for a bee block! I love it! Your scraps are so cheerful.
I have tamed my scrap box and am feeling pretty pleased with myself if you want any ideas on taming yours.
Great block! Thanks for sharing and the tutorial link.
I love wonky blocks , stars , log cabin and now pinwheel . The scrappiness of this great
Those are some incredibly gorgeous scraps! Taming a scrap mountain full of such lovelies sounds fun 🙂
Love this block, looks like a perfect scrap buster. The only vision I get when you say taming the mountain of scraps is you driving that new road beast of yours up a mountain of fabric. I’ll leave you with that visual for the day!
Oh I love this!!
