Do you get Distracted?

I do.

Mini Pinwheels (3 inches) with a 1 inch border. These blocks were the start of a mini quilt but they are steadily growing in number to form a baby quilt.

Very easily distracted.

  1. All the time!

    Like yesterday I was going to make a jelly roll quilt, and ended up making squillions of box bags instead!

  2. I absolutely love these pinwheels! Much better than the pointy triangle ones, in my humble opinion! Can you give a hint on how to make this block? Thanks!

  3. These are just wonderful. Love how you cut the fabric with the vine-y block.

  4. Hi Courtney, I used a template to cut the fabric pieces. A little fussy and time consuming but not really that bad, as you cut 2 inch strips of fabric and then you can flip the template up and down to cut to the correct size fabric pieces. Does that make sense? I might blog the template next week. Thanks for visiting though!

  5. I'm distracted all the time! That's why my WIP is so big!! The difference between us is that you actually have something darling to show for it.

  8. I get distracted too. Sometimes I don't mind at all. But other times, like now when I have three quilt tops needing quilting, it bothers me. I am trying hard not to start another quilt project until I finish these! But I do love pinwheels, and these are adorable! They can be so playful and cheery.

  10. I have to put everything else away besides what I am working on or nothing gets done sometimes. Love the little whirly giggles framed.

  16. I think being distracted is a good thing. Some of my favorite quilts grew bigger because I was distracted and just kept making blocks.

  22. Yes! Now you've added to my distraction :)

    I love the boarder on the pinwheels. I'll be interested to see them set together. I have a large pinwheel quilt that just needs to be laid out.

  27. Oh Rita! If you blog this template I will be forever grateful! I have tried a template from another site after seeing your blocks and the seam allowance is throwing off the whole thing! I don't know what I am doing wrong. I just love your blog so much and visit daily. Thanks a bunch!
