Here is my block 9 - and I love it! I think it may be the fabrics I've used (love that bright green), and definitely the symmetry :-)
I was nervous about making the pinwheel in the centre, but I ended up foundation piecing most of it, and I'm thrilled with how it came out.
At the time you're reading this, I will already be in the USA, probably only for a few hours. I'd say we'll be either already at, or on the way to Grover Beach.
I'll check back in soon!
