Hello Friends, Happy Monday, Happy Week and Happy October!!!
A few months ago, I shared with you some tips on making pinwheel blocks here.
Well, that’s because I was making pinwheel blocks upon pinwheel blocks for a while there for the two following pinwheel projects. :) It truly is amazing to me how a simple unit, when used differently, can create totally different looks. I think that’s what appeals to me in designing quilts. I love to see what I can do with simple quilt blocks.
#1. Pinwheel Parade in Fons and Porter’s Scrap Quilts (Summer 2016)
Pinwheel Parade is made with Windham Fabrics’ Chambray Rose.
I enjoyed quilting this quilt — and here are a few pictures.
Here is the back:
And the front of the quilt center looks like this:
You may recall I had another editorial feature in McCall’s Quilting last year using the same Chambray Rose fabrics.
#2. Up next is Winter Wind in McCall’s Quilting (November/December 2016)
A special thank you to my dear friend Darlene Szabo of Sewing Graceful Quilting for quilting the quilt for me.
Winter Wind is made with fabrics from Quilting Treasures‘ Canterbury line – elegant & masculine & timeless! Exclusive kits are available for a limited time here.
I have 2 copies of the magazine issues to give away. If you would like to have it, just leave a comment! :)
That’s all for now, Friends! Lots more to come…. but lots more to do as well, so I’d better fly for now! Hugs to you all.
