The pinwheel squares were from a Primedia block exchange, made by staff members of McCall's Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter, Quiltmaker, and Sew News magazines. I used two of them to center Colorado Blocks, and filled in the background with four additional pinwheels. The appliquéd flower is a columbine, the state flower of Colorado.Dedication:
