This one is for my uncle who turns 80 years old.
Here's a closeup to show the quilting, stars and swirls.
I have used this technique before years ago on a small quilt and added some beads on the centre of each pinwheel.
The same technique can be found on Moda Bake Shop - Pinwhweel Twist
I started with 100 , 6" squares of different solid fabrics.
Once the squares are joint together randomly, the top is marked with a template, recut and joint together to form the pinwheel.
Basicallly we only sew straight seams and the result looks more complicated than it really is.
Did a little fabric shopping yesterday that I want to share with you...
I bought a large enough piece to use as backing for a lap size quilt, but any suggestions on using on the quilt top itself are welcome !
Then I found this geometric pattern... I think this is my favourite fabric of all times at the moment. Don't know if I have the courage to cut it up !
And a few more small pieces for the stash....
