I actually got a few hours to sew this week! I’m much more sane when I’m able to get some sewing time in. I’m also now finished with Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer now. Do you also watch TV while you are sewing? I find that shows where you don’t HAVE to hear everything that’s going on are best. But I like to let my mind follow the story as I’m working. After I’m finished with a quilt, I sometimes remember the association to the show too.
I got a decent amount of progress completed on my Scrappy Pinwheel Quilt last night. The blocks are going pretty quickly too. I get about 6-8 finished for each episode. If you missed it, there is a tutorial in my last post.
I decided to add in some light blue as well to cool off the quilt. I really like the way it’s looking. I started with some of the older Denyse Schmidt fabrics I have in my stash. Fabrics from Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope (both now out of print and hard to find! Sorry!). I do think that her new line (coming in August) Hadley will coordinate well with with these too.
Originally, I had planned to make this into a lap size but I’m really considering making it into a queen now. It’s going so quickly. I bet it would go even more quickly if I cut up all my strips at once but I’m just doing 6 blocks at a time. Sometimes I like to just add in fabrics as I go. It takes longer but it helps with the “scrappy” look.
Also, since I’m using mostly the long edge of fat quarters (18″ x 22″) and half of a white jello roll strip to make my blocks, I have these little 2.5″ strips left over at the ends. I’ve been using them as leaders and enders and I think I’m going to make them into quilted Pillow shams to match. Fancy!
I’m also linking up with WIP Wednesday over on Lee’s blog. I love seeing what everyone is making each week!
this is looking great. I have this on my list and would love to make it as well!
Thanks! I hope you make one too!
Beautiful quilt Brenda. So happy to have found your blog 🙂
