Thank you for all of your very kind comments on my Pinwheels blog post earlier this week. It has been an extra productive week at RPQ involving late late nights of cutting, sewing, trimming and quilting, and very little has been accomplished on the domestic front. All of this means that the Pinwheel Quilt is finished, but the house is messy.
Pinwheels on Parade
I've enjoyed playing with the new Picnic and Fairgrounds fabric by Denyse Schmidt. This range of fabric, although complete in itself, also lends itself well to mixing with many other prints in my stash. The overall look is a scrappy but cohesive and colorful quilt.
For the back of the quilt I have selected two of my favorite prints from the Picnic and Fairgrounds collection and together with a solid red fabric, have set them as abold zig zag design on a solid grey (Kona Ash) background.
Pinwheels on Parade ~ Quilt Back
I have kept the quilting to a minimum, quilting straight lines both horizontally and vertically through the sashing strips, as well as in the ditch diagonal lines through the center of all of the blocks. It sounds quick and easy, but trust me, it was time consuming and involved much quilt wrangling.
For binding I have used a lime green and white stripe from From Little Things fabric collection by Sarah Fielke. I love these stripes ~ they are a little wider than a traditional pin stripe and the colors are vibrant.
The good news for today is that I have updated my Etsy Store to include a listing for this quilt AND I have also written a pattern for this quilt: The Pinwheel Parade Quilt Pattern!
Both the pattern and the quilt are listed for sale in my Etsy Store.
