Make a Pinwheel in Create®
and Mask a Group
Open Create and make a Pinwheel for your windmill using the Rose aftereffect (see the Flower Tutorial).

Add a blend you like and reshape as needed.

Using the Circle Tool, draw out a perfect circle while holding down the Shift key.

Size the circle to fit tightly around the Pinwheel (again hold shift key while dragging a corner bounding box handle).

With both circle and Pinwheel selected, go to Object-> Group -> Mask Group or type Shift-Command-E.

The circle is used as a mask which changes the bounding box of the Pinwheel.

Note: The circle must be the front object for this to work.
