I'm a Blockhead!

Moda is sponsoring a Block of the Week, called Blockhead BOW.  Since I have nothing to do, haha, I decided to join and here is my first block - the Whirligig.
Have to admit the first on I attempted was a total mess, and ended up in the trash can.  Got up this morning and drew it out EQ7 and paper pieced it.  Much, much easier.  I plan to use the blue in all my blocks to give the scrappiness some unity, and hoping to use other fabrics with that gold metallic sparkle as well in most of the blocks.  I have a good bit in my stash, but not sure if I have enough.
Its a snowy day in SC this morning.  Nice to see a little snow, but have to look quick, it will probably all be gone this afternoon.  Looks like a black and white photo, but is actually in color.

We missed the snow,thank goodness, being just north of you! I love that Whirlygig block. I believe that being referred to as a Blockhead would be a compliment, especially with results as pretty as yours! :)

I'm in the same Moda group(and having the same problems, what a mess). My next idea is try it by paperpiecing it. Glad it worked out so well for you.
