Watch Out for Mirror Image Effect

Before I printed the foundation pattern for this block, "A-1 Pinwheel Gone Awry", I remembered to mirror the image. This made sure that the pinwheel was spinning in the right direction when I put the block together.

After I made this block, I realized that when I made "E-3 Paddle Wheels", I forgot to mirror the image, so I wound up with the pinwheel spinning in a different direction than Jane's did. You can see it in my post dated June 27th. At that time, I was more concerned with fixing my triangle points and didn't notice the wrong spinning. I don't think it bothers me enough to redo it.
