Pinwheels: Of Quilts and Motion to Turn Your Life Around

The pinwheel quilt block has a sense of motion, as I construct each cell of triangles spinning around.  I discovered that the pinwheel is a symbol of “turning ones luck around” and is used in Chinese New Year celebrations.    Veronica talks about the symbolism of the pinwheel in Pinwheel Girls.   What  are the pinwheels in your life?
