i had just discovered string piecing.
i decided to couple string piecing with my love for half square triangles and pinwheels.
boom. pinwheel o'strings was created.
the block was featured in volume 2 of quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine.
read more about it HERE.
quiltmaker recently started releasing nifty videos featuring different quilt blocks.
they showcase blocks from the 100 blocks magazines and teach techniques, tips and designs ideas.
well, guess which block is featured in their newest video.
yep, my pinwheel o'strings.
and just like that, my quilt block is brought back to life.
i personally enjoy watching videos of people creating things.
i'm a visual learner.
also, check out the post over at the quilty pleasures blog today.
they're having a giveaway for a few different string piecing books.
direct link HERE.

if yes, do you enjoy it?
if no, after seeing the video, don't you want to try it? go on. you know you do. :)
