Pinwheels and Prayers Needed Quickly

A little girl needs your prayers- and pinwheels.
And Missy Shay, wants to help.
I'm stealing a couple of lines from her blog
(see link below)
I hope she won't mind.
I am no pinwheel expert (as you can see)
I struggle with them, of all things!
But I'm up for sending a few of them
and hoping Missy can use them.

From Missy's blog:

The little girl's name is Kenzie.  She is 7 and has cerebral palsy.
She just had surgery(She had to have hamstrings lengthened, groin muscle lengthened, and her hip put back in place. It involved breaking her leg in 2 places and some other work to repair the cup that the ball joint sits in.) and I would really like to get this quilt to her as quickly as possible.
If you can spare a few prayers
and a couple of pinwheels
send them to Missy Shay.

Please go to Missy's blog for the sizes 
and additional information.
Briefly, this is the tutorial for making easy pinwheels
using charms would be even faster.

From Missy's blog:

Here is the tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  The block finishes out to 5 3/4 when using five inch squares to start with.

Please let me know if you can help, you can send the blocks to my house,

Your pinwheels look great. Sounds like they are for a fabulous cause too.

Pretty Pinwheels, sending prayers.

I can't get to the instructions, and I only barely understand your paragraph about squares; but I can certainly pray. ♥

The hyperlink is probably on Missy's blog. If you do want to see the tutorial you can copy and paste this

Thank you but I do struggle. As careful as I try to be, I somehow stretch them during pressing even though I use the Best Press starch and go straight down, not ironing side to side.

Thank you very much
