Well, it's true, it WAS the fabric. (wink, wink). I did use some of the new fabric I got in the mail and I just really like this last block for the Block-a-palooza, "Gingham" Pinwheels. Yes, there is no Gingham in my block, but the original directions were done with pink Gingham, hence the name. I'd love to know what you think- really.
