Progress? What Progress?

The heat has subsided - thank goodness - as the last two days have been lovely with high 70's. I am so hoping it continues through the week, so that I can finish up the second duck quilt. Here's the current status:

progress on pinwheel duck quilt

See? I've made good use of those pinwheels!


And notice what I did to the little ones - added some duck fabric around them, to bring them up to the 6 1/2" size.

bringing blocks up to size

Quite the creative way to solve a size issue, don't you think? That's my quilting trick for you today!

All right, looks like I'm off to sew a few more pinwheels and get this one finished up. That is if I don't get distracted by all the red, white, and blue floating around!

Stay cool and sew on!

  4. I really like the borders on the pin wheels. Neat. I did that for a Jane Austin block that just would not cooperate!
