A Block Design Challenge Finish!

So last month, Candi issued a UFO challenge that got my butt in gear and made me finish up my Kaleidoscope quilt - a challenge which I am quite grateful for!

Naturally, this month, when she posted her new challenge.. I was totally in. The challenge was simple - design an original block. Only constraint was that it needed to be 12" finished. Easy enough, right?
Uh, not so much. You should see how many sketches I went through.
I finally settled on this pinwheeling situation. I'm not sure what to call it. It was supposed to be a bit more circular in the original design, but I quite like the rounded square center that resulted. I am envisioning it in red and white.. wouldn't it look quite like a peppermint pillow mint?!

I love it! My favorite part - that subtle curve it has!

I like the curve, too. Did you use a cathedral windows style fold for that curve? Great block!

I love your aqua and orange block - those colours look gorgeous together!
