My last post for 2014, a quilt that was completed about 6 weeks ago. I finally had two people at home to hold it up and a pretty day for pictures. This combination has been hard to find.
This pinwheel quilt is made from two Scrumptious layer cakes and some Kona Snow yardage. I did remove all the solids from the layer cake and a couple of prints that read mostly light background.
My local quilt shop had a class on this pinwheel technique and I really enjoy the social aspect of classes with other fellow sewers - so I signed right up.
Here is a couple ways to do a pinwheel
Quilt It method
The quilting pattern the longarm quilter used is Baptist Fan, the first time I had used this one but love it on this quilt.
On a year-end, vacation, holiday sewing note. This year I really took the last two weeks off for the most part from work (had to go in a a couple of days), spent time with family, did a bit of sewing (mostly quilting), rearranged furniture, cleaned/organized closets (including donating clothing), slept late, watched movies and just relaxed. I am feeling very refreshed and ready to ring in 2015
Happy New Year and thanks so much for reading and commenting on my blog, I really appreciate it.
