Pinwheel Progress

This is going to be a super quick post because we are headed out the door tomorrow and I still have a load of stuff to get done.

I actually already finished a baby quilt using these same fabrics and I'll post that later but as long as I had them out I decided to finish cutting up the fat quarter bundle and whip up a pinwheel lap quilt.  

The fabrics are the florals from Sara Morgan's Toybox IV line.  They have that 1930's vibe and I really love how they look when paired with a white background.  The colors are just so vibrant and pretty.

I managed to get all the HSTs done but then got stalled making the pinwheel blocks because of a little flooding in the basement courtesy of this crazy rainy tornado crap weather that is going on out here this summer.  Luckily we haven't had anything catastrophic but still I am not happy to be mopping up water and installing extra drainspouts and having the waterproofer guys out here all the time.

When I get back from vacation I have a little Christmas project I've been working on that should be ready to share.

  1. Are you using a pattern for this quilt? If so which one?

    1. Hi - No pattern just my own calculations. I figured how big I wanted it and then made enough pinwheels to fill the space. There are tons of free tutorials out there on how to make pinwheels at different sizes to meet your needs. I don't think on such a classic block that you need to pay money for a pattern.
