In November I asked the Empower Circle of do. Good Stitches to make wonky pinwheels (from this tutorial)
I thought wrong...
With the holidays and some personal issues going on, I didn't get them all in until January and then I still had to make mine which I'd put off until I had them all.
Then when I got them all laid out to sew together I realized that some of the blocks were sewn together wrong. It was an easy-to-make mistake. I almost did it myself. A few girls matched the points instead of making the wonky pinwheel and these blocks stuck out big time!
So, I had to rip them apart and re-sew those blocks before I could put the top together. I think 5-6 were wrong, so it wasn't hard to fix them, it just took time to do it.
But finally, I've got all of the block sewn together into a quilt top and I do love it!
|I love the fabrics in this block!|
I'm thinking an over-all FMQ on this quilt. Maybe stippling. Maybe a loop-de-loop design. I'm not sure. I don't think I want to do anything straight because of all of the angles in the quilt besides the wonky-ness of the pinwheels.
|This block was made with linen--LOVE it!!!|
I love my d.GS circle. The girls are all so kind and creative. It's such a fun group to work with, talk with, and do good for others with.
If you've ever considered joining up either as a stitcher or a quilter, I'd highly recommend it. The rewards far outweigh the work you put in. And we can all stand to give a little more to make someone else's day brighter can't we?
