Pinwheel Quilt Top
I should be sewing purses for my craft sale, but lately I've been wanting to do something different. I've had this fabric for about a year and I didn't want to hang onto it for so long that I quite liking it :)
I knew I wanted to do something with a lot of white. I'm also a big fan of half square triangles - there are just so many possibilities. I finally decided on the pinwheels. Partly because they're quick and easy and partly because I just felt like they suited the fabric.
I was pretty pleased with the accuracy of most of my blocks. Who knew that sewing purses would improve my piecing skills too? I also squared up all the pinwheel blocks before adding the sashing. I think it really helped keep everything square! I really enjoyed putting this together.
Not everything is accurate. Not bad enough to rip it out though :)
I probably won't get around to quilting this for a while. My trusty old Kenmore isn't the best quilter so I'll probably quilt this on my moms machine.
Now that I've gotten that out of my system, it's back to the purses!
Have a great week everyone!
