Oh Scrap! : Pinwheels

 I love it when I arrive at a plan!




I have a bunch of these cute little 4.5" pinwheel blocks in blue stacked up on my ironing board.




They are leftover bonus triangles from this scrappy quilt I made.




This year I decided to make a similar quilt for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge so I am ending up with even more little pinwheels.




Well, I finally decided to combine the two projects into these cute pinwheel blocks.  Each block will have two blue and two RSC pinwheels.  So far, I have completed pink and yellow.  I also plan on adding a tiny colorful cornerstone in each.  At the end of the year, there should be enough to make a lap quilt - that is if my math is correct :)

What scrappy projects are you planning this year?

  1. We always end up with more scraps and more orphan blocks. But that's great. I just finished a totally scrappy pineapple quilt. Now I'm making a scrappy quilt from old curtains and other old fabrics. Hope it will end up as beautiful as I see it in my head.

  3. It's always fun to see what quilters can do with bonus HSTs! Your pinwheels are going to be fun in a rainbow of colors. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

  4. Those pinwheel blocks rock. I too make pinwheels out of the trimmed bonus triangles. I like where you are going with pinwheels! I'm making string blocks this year. I should reduce the bags of strings hanging about my space greatly in the next year. . . .should being the operative word because I know that I'll be trimming and adding more strings to the mix as I work on other projects!

  7. Fun plan for a rainbow quilt Cyndy. I am thrilled to be using up tons of scraps and stash lately. Today I am working on a number of placemats for our local Meals on Wheels organization. (Our guild is doing this as a community service effort) These are the best for using up orphan blocks. Fun stuff. :-)

  13. Wait! Are you done with your yellow for all of the month? Or are there other projects you'll be showing us this month? I like the plan but ick -- 4.5" blocks so tiny! I am way over small blocks since I did many of them in late 80s and early 90s. Enjoy your cute little blocks. I'm wondering what you'll be sharing next week!
