Pinwheel Star for Michele

This is a block for the other bee that I'm part of this year - One Block Over. I'm having great fun making just one or two blocks with fun fabrics. Avoids a bit of the 'second sock/mitten syndrome' that fellow knitters understand.


Michele sent a fun pile of Bloom and Grow from Riley Blake and loves both pinwheels and stars (me too!) She sent a pattern, but also said we could change it up pretty much however we liked. So I ended up with a wonky shooting star kind of thing.


With a super sweet bird in the top corner.

I love that! I totally saw the shooting star thing before I even read it :) I understand about the second sock / mitten thing... I have a couple unfinished WIPs that'll prove it lol
