Good news: The Big Spin quilt top is done! The bad news: the quilting is delayed, so no more pictures till then.
And why is that? Because I got caught up in sewing pinwheels and making that aqua fabric disappear!
After many hours working on the background pinwheels for The Big Spin, I ended up having a couple pinwheels leftover. Add those to the leftover pinwheels from Ducks in a Pond. There was no way I was going to pack these up for a later project - it's now or never!
And there was that remaining small pile of aqua scraps. Granted, I've done well to use them up, as Perennial Pinwheels, Diamond Chevrons, Pixie Sticks, Fluctuate, and Ducks in the Pond are proof of my scrap busting. No way did I want to put that much back into the scrap bin.
Then, while rummaging through a different scrap bag,
I found two more small chunks of the cute duck fabric, a bit more than half snowballs.
So, after spending so much time making pinwheels, what's a few more right? And let's just put them on the design wall to see what we've got.
On the left is all of the duck fabric remains. The ten pinwheels next to that are all the same size, 6 1/2". Then moving to the right, the pinwheels get smaller, with the littlest one 5". Hmm, a bit of a size problem, but that's what happens when one works with scraps.
That's where I'm at. Somehow, some way, I will figure out how to put these pieces into a quilt. Believe me? I'm sure I'll rise to the challenge!
