Does any one know how to fix a pinwheel that does not meet in the center????
it looks like 2 of your half squares don't meet on the corners
yes, the half squares should come out with the two fabrics meeting exactly in the middle. Make sure you are sewing a scant quarter inch consistently. Half squares are still tricky. Some folks make them a little bigger, then cut down to the exact size they want, with the diagonal seam exactly lined up with the point.
Missouri Star Quilt Co has a great tutorial on youtube.
Here is the link:

Thanks ladies I am going to give it another go tonight.
Yeah, tutorials are great! Elizabeth, one of the best ways to get lots of guidance and a gazillion answers to questions is to post on the message board. Go to message boards, scroll down and pick a category like 'quilt making' and click on that, then click on the blue words, write a new post (or something like that.) Posting picks is a little different there, click on film strip, after selecting the photo click insert. Wait, wait, wait, then when it shows up, click post. with your enthusiasm, you wont be a beginner for long!
I finally got it!!! I figured out that I really needed to pin to get the right.
