Strawberry Lemonade

 Or, it can be called Kissing Pinwheels.  I think of both when I think of this quilt.



I had a bunch of trimmed or "bonus" triangles in blacks and whites so I decided to turn them into tiny pinwheels.  I knew they would be perfect for one of my Scrap Mixology designs.  Then I pulled one of my favorite color combinations of scraps.





There are so many ways to lay out these blocks - but I loved this one where the pinwheels "kiss".




Now this quilt just needs a sweet little girl to gift it too!




Even though I have been quilting for decades, I am still amazed at how small changes in fabric, layout or colors can make the same block look so different.  You can see other ways to lay out these blocks in my Two Bits pattern - the second module of my Scrap Mixology pattern series.

I hope those who celebrated, had a nice Thanksgiving.  I am thankful so many of you join me on this creative journey - I really do appreciate all of you!








Time to finally hit buy on my cart :)

  8. Pink and yellow together are so sweet and upbeat! Adding the black and white pinwheels gives it some spinny movement, too. Fun finish :)

  9. What a happy quilt. It will bring joy to some little girl. I've so far been successful in avoiding all the sales. Apparently Fat Quarter Shop had some major website snafu. There were some unhappy customers sounding off on Instagram.

  12. I never tire of that either...the way colours and fabrics can so change a block. I love the way those black and white pinwheels stand out. That adds lots of interest to the overall look...an inspiring touch!

  13. It is always fun to see what happens to a pattern using different colors or a different layout or a combination of the two. Your strawberry lemonade is a winner!
