Mystery Charm square BOM....


I've joined in another fun swap on the craft forum I belong to and let me tell you I was having a panic attack trying to match the points up for the first block!! The block is called double pinwheel and boy did I sweat cutting it out and putting it together.
There are ten blocks in this BOM and the final block I make for myself and the other nine participants each sent there other nine blocks off to the wild blue yonder in the hope that when they returned to their owners from their alloted month they would come back a finished 6 1/2" block.
I was sweating and panicing because you only get the alloted squares and background square/s and that's it,no room for mistakes so a few of us girls doing this BOM decided to do a mock block using other fabric to test it and this is what I did but it still didn't stop the hear palpitations when you go to cut into the other persons fabrics lol.
Anyway I hope Toni-Marie likes her block and doesn't mind the sweat stain marks heheheheh.

It sure is panic attack time when we use the others fabric....I done mine just great and when I went to do my partners it was a near total stuff up...but eventually it worked and I was like you with those points. Yours looks good Barb and it really is a lovely block.
