Lately, I've been seeing so many cute quilts using pinwheels, that I just had to get my feet wet too. AND.....no time like the present with the little quilts I've been making for the doll swap (not that I need anymore, mind you.......but, I did volunteer to be the "official Angel provider" for this go-round, so one or two more won't hurt, just in case.) I was told that usually 7-8 are needed. (A good excuse to play some more if nothing else!! LOL) Believe it or not, I had never made pinwheels before so all the tutorials I found were good.....but because of the size I needed, had to be altered. Of course, this was no problem after "285" with the 3/4 inch squares.....but I didn't go that nuts!
All those little triangles reminded me of Easter eggs for some reason (probably because I have no patience and don't leave the dumb eggs in the little cups long enough to get the really dark colors. LOL) Oh well...that's another post.
I used up all my linen with this project. I've decided, at least for now, that Kona cotton and Kona bleached muslin are more my style.....and cheaper too! Maybe in the future though, I'll try some blended linen/cotton. That might be a bit easier to handle. Linen tends to be slippery and doesn't want to stay where you put it. At least mine was like that.
Now....does that look like me? Hardly! WAY too traditional and with pastel colors to boot? EIKES! Truth be told is that my knee is still on the blink and my solids were here and everything else is in the basement. What could I do? I think it's time to see the doctor, huh?
