Pretty Pinwheels

 Another week - Another finish!

I love when you find yourself in a finishing mode.  Some months you feel like you are making no progress and then all of a sudden, blocks are going together into quilt tops and you have a stack of quilts to sew the binding on.



This week I finished up my RSC pinwheel quilt. These pinwheels were all made using the trimmed triangles from two of my RSC Well Suited quilts I made this year. 




The sashing and cornerstones all came out of the scrap bin too.  I used a narrow sashing in the blocks and then used a wider sashing when I put the blocks into a quilt top.  I really like the effect!



I used one of the clearance fabrics I picked up a Connecting Threads on the back and applied a scrappy binding made from leftover binding strips.

The quilting is a playful free motion pattern I call Splish Splash.  
Swirl in - swirl out - and then a couple long teardrops.




The quilt measures about 50 x 60.  It is just going into the donation pile for now.  I like to have a stack of scrappy quilts ready for giving.  They always find a forever home where they are very much needed and appreciated.


I have to say I am enjoying seeing all the RSC quilts by others coming together.
I need to start thinking about my next blocks for 2022!

  5. Another fabulous finish! Sometimes I am just in the mood to quilt and not bind, one time my pile of 'to be bound' was 15 table runners.
