Putting the block on point and adding sashing gives a very different look. Plus, the name of the block as "red and white cross" is more obvious on point.
Floating the pinwheels on a dark background and adding stripes gives a whirling look to the design.
To make the pinwheels really stand out, use a monochrome background. These blocks are on point.
By coloring blocks on the diagonal a very different look can be achieved. This looks like rotors rather than pinwheels?
Again, stripes add "movement" to the pinwheels. Changing the color of the blades gives a scrappy look.
