Once you have done that, let me take you back to the beginning and how this quilt got started. Over the years, I have been buying up charm packs and these were the leftovers. What I call ugly fabrics .... you know the ones that just don't fit in with what you were doing. Big prints and stripes. They could have been trashed or given away; but they ended up in a bin. One day last November, I started pulling out all of those charms and was amazed at the number that were found. More than 176 to make the above quilt and there are still leftovers.
Pinwheel blocks were what these fabrics needed to be made into and I got started on them right away.
Ummm ... what would some circles look like on the blocks? Yes, love what is happening here!
Since this quilt is intended for the cottage, machine quilting was the way to go. Simple straight line stitching was done throughout ..... even into the borders.
The back shows the gridwork well.
This was my ugly duckling quilt but in the end ...... my new quilt has charmed me instead!
Waiting in the wings is another stack of charm leftovers and you just know that there will be another pinwheel quilt in the future.
Pinwheel block size: 8" x 8" (88 blocks x 2 charms per block = 176 charms)
All from my stash, including backing .... now that is a good thing!
Have a great day, eh!
