Scrappy Pinwheels quilt

   Done!  A finish.....finally.
    The center section has been hanging around for about a year.  Nine blocks made using the "5 minute block" that I talked about last August. Click here for that post.
   Since it was square, I added a row of those leftover pinwheels from one of Bonnie Hunter's patterns to the top and bottom.  They sure have come in handy for finishing off quilts.  I probably have another 20 of them, so I am sure they will pop up again.
  I finished it off with a piano key border.  And the binding is whatever was in the binding bin!  I love mixing it all together.

   Swirly quilting around the pinwheels, which are the dimensional geese that are stitched down with a curved edge.

 Size finished is 48" by 65"....a small lap quilt that I am donating to Habitat for Humanity.

   And just a little more quilting going on.  This is the quarter log cabin that has the diagonal bands.  Right now I am quilting the light area with feathers.  I will use a large stipple thru the print fabric bands as little stitching will show.  Yikes, I could actually get this one finished this month, too!

   Guess you can tell the back is much better, even with the long ride last week. I am so glad to be stitching again.....I need the therapy of it.  :D

Happy stitching.


  1. What a delightful scrappy quilt! Glad to hear you are feeling better.

  2. Enhorabuena por el resultado. Te ha quedado un quilt espectacular Besos

  3. You got back on track pretty fast, I really like the pinwheels, curves are my current fear and I like the gentle curves in yours, maybe that's a good place to start. As usual your feathers are perfection.

  4. The pinwheel quilt is beautiful. I really like the way you used the extra pinwheel blocks for the top & bottom border. Your feathers look soft & flowing on that quarter log cabin quilt. Thanks for sharing your lovely work with us.

  5. Such a great idea to add in the pinwheels and I'm such a fan of piano key borders... wonderful finish!

  6. Lovely scrappy quilt. I love those rounded pin-wheels, they're so dynamic!
