Here is an easy way to eliminate templates:
When viewing the completed block (last photo) the brown star fabric looks as though a template is needed.
Instead, with the correct measurements, here's a nifty way around cutting templates!
Draw 45* lines on the fabric going in one direction
on another brown star rectangle, draw lines in the opposite direction
stitch first rectangle onto what will be your triangle fabric
chain stitch; 4 are needed
trim and press
stitch the other side
after it is pressed and trimmed, add squares to each end, stitching on the diagonal.
Flip, trim and press
see those brown star templates?
stitch this section to both sides of the finished pinwheel, add finishing squares to the top and bottom sections and stitch in place
