The finished size for my small version is 36" x 36", and was possibly going to be given as a baby quilt. But hubby has an blank orange wall behind him at work, and wants to hang it there. Guess he can't resist that big pinwheel either - it's my favorite part!
How about some closeups? The quilting follows that of the pattern, a big spiral, though I put little spirals over the smaller pinwheels.
I'm not that fond of those little ones, and in retrospect, probably should have just continued with the big one. But it's okay, they add some interest.
Take a close look at the pinwheels they spin over. Those, plus some of the pinwheels that make up the big one, are made from the 'making fabric' scrap project.
There's the light ones seen above, and the dark ones in the picture below.
It's amazing how those scrap fabric pieces take on the identity of a printed fabric, a very useful illusion for scraps to make.
Being that this quilt is a small version, I couldn't exactly follow the layout in the pattern. That meant some designing on my part. Here's a look at three different settings before the final version.
For fun, can you guess how many pinwheels are in this quilt? And how many HST's? Leave separate guesses for each in the comments below. The person who is close without going over for each guesstimate will win a little prize! Please, one guess per question per person. Guessing game will finish next Wednesday night, June 28, 2017. Good luck!
