Pinwheel Quilt

Standard

So lately I’ve had several “fascinations”. I couldn’t limit myself to trying out just one or two different quilt patterns, SO lol I have started them ALL. I know I know, I’m batty 😉 I’ve changed up how I quilt now. Before I’d start one project and do nothing but that project until it was finished. I would find myself getting burned out and tired of working on it halfway through, then I’d realized that it was taking me way longer to finish it then it really should have. Being on here I’ve started to realize how some quilters would start many projects all through the year and would take their time finishing each of them. So that is why I’ve got over a handful of unfinished quilts going on in my sewing room. You would think that doing that would be hectic and stressful, but it’s not that bad. Some projects I’m working on only require a small space to work, usually just stationed around my ironing board. However if it is a “big” project that needs the whole floor, then I will get it all laid out and sewn to a point I can fold it back up and hang in it my closet. I will one day get me one of those felt walls and have almost no need to be on the floor! Anyway, now to tell you about this pinwheel quilt.

I bought the fabric I’m using here for a project for my Mother-in-law. These colors are her favorite. At the time I had no idea what they would be used for and after many months of thinking, searching Pinterest and going to the Public Library, I came across the pinwheel pattern and thought that would just be adorable. Considering I was already now considering the Prairie Garden Quilt to be going to her.

This is a picture of my first pinwheel EVER. It’s not THAT bad, but I think I know how I should pin it to make it come together better. I’ve got two pinwheels finished and about 60 more to go, that is going to be a little time consuming lol.
