My daughter says these look like coffins. They're pinwheels, actually.

Green pinwheel blocks will alternate with white ones.
I'm not sure if I should be starting something with such tedious piecing (sewing between marked dots), but I'm finding it freeing to cut fabric with my good old scissors using a template. I even moved my sewing machine off my working table to give myself more room to work. This is something I can work mindlessly on in spurts without having to figure out where I am in the project. At least at this stage. I'm trying to use up leftover fabrics scraps and stash fabrics as well.
By the way, lime green is my daughter's favorite color and she's firmly rejected pink as being "too girly". I can't say I'm a big fan of lime green, and I'm sure I bought the green solid fabric featured above with her in mind. This weekend, I worked on painting her new room which formerly was the breakfast room.
After stripping off the wallpaper, we discovered pencil drawings by the landlord when he was teenager in the mid-50's.
