Here They Come!!!


But They Are Not Mine!!!!

Friends are starting to have Grandbabies. I am so happy for them!

While in Utah, this past November, I got to revisit some quilt stores and find some new ones. I picked up a Moda Layer Cake. At our guild's retreat this past October I demonstrated a simple way to make a pinwheel. I have searched high and low for the link and I can not find it. So today I made a simple photo tutorial on making the block. Please excuse my photos--this was my first attempt at doing this.

This quilt is made with Moda Layer Cake cottons, soft baby blue Minkee (?) for borders, backing and binding. And a over sized Rick-Rack . The batting is 50%Bamboo and 50% organic cotton.

I loved quilting with this batting!

The quilting.

Detail of quilting.

Cut any size squares (2) that you choose. Mine are 10 inch. It can be any size but be

consistent through out the quilt you are working on.

Right sides together. Sew 1/4 inch all the way around the block.

Take ruler and cut corner to corner this way.

And corner to corner this way

Should look like this after it has been cut

Open each piece and it should look like this.

Either finger press or iron.

Rotate blocks to form a Pinwheel

And sew to form the block!!!

And it is that easy!!!!

Till We Quilt Again,
