Something different


So, being a bit tired of the cat quilt, I have set it aside for a week or two and pulled out something else to work on - this little roll of strips - there are 10 different fabrics in the roll, so I am using them with some plain white to make some of these drop-dead-simple pinwheel blocks (squares and rectangles only - my favourite!).  I picked this roll up last time I was in the US - the summer of 2010 - so it really is about time to do something with it.


There will be 20 blocks (8") total and any strips leftover I may use as a floating border. I'm only photographed 4, but I think I've made about 10 so far. Given how busy my weekend has been, that's fairly impressive, frankly.

I think that block will make a very impressive quilt. Awaiting with baited breath for the finished product

I too love this block. My daughter is in the process of doing a quilt using this and the larger pinwheel you can do from the same pattern and Im using it for my Rainbow scrap challenge. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt!

They look really lovely.

I like this way of making this block. I'd never noticed it before. I like the fabric, too. As you say, "something different."

I love these! When I studied the pieces, you are right, it would be easy, but looks complicated. Love the colors too.
