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.

Again, stripes add "movement" to the pinwheels. Changing the color of the blades gives a scrappy look.
