I've finished my top so I'll jump in and post a few pics.  I did something a little different and sewed all the strips together to make a huge strip piece.  Then I used my 6" square template and cut squares at angles to make a pinwheel.  I cut the leftovers into 2" strips, sewed one long strip and used that for the sash.  It isn't as big as I wanted it to be, but I used almost all of the fabric! 

In process - I cut squares, sewed strips together and cut more squares:


The finished quilt!  It was amazing to me how different each square is using the same technique to make them:


My favorite square - I hung this on my sons wall to get pics, and he hasn't asked me to take it down yet so I think I know who this quilt will be for Smiley  You can also see the sash, it's made up from cutting scraps after the squares

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
