{Post 1,179} Bonus Triangle Quilt Idea

Finally, I have hit upon an idea for a quilt to use up the HST bonus units from my Shooting Star quilt.  Here is the picture I found on the internet.  There was no name mentioned to which I should give credit.  This means a lot more rummaging through my shirts and much more cutting, but I think it will be worth it.  This is not a race, and there is no deadline.

Here's the 4 blocks I've pieced so far.  I wanted to see if it made a difference which way the pinwheels turned.  I inadvertently made 25 of them with one orientation and 25 of the other.  My guess is that if I didn't point it out, no one would notice!  The two blocks in the left half of the block have pinwheels turning in opposite directions, while the two blocks on the right have identically oriented blocks.
