Finished Pinwheel Quilt with 1930’s Reproduction Fabric

I’ve been working on lap quilts to donate (I had one place in mind, but a coworker threw in another children’s place so I have to make a decision soon).

The latest is a simple Pinwheel quilt using 1930’s reproduction fabric…I was never really fond of the 1930’s fabric before, but thought it would make a nice children’s quilt. Boy is it ever a cheerful fabric! I love it now. I’m going to have to make myself something out of the 1930’s repos! 🙂

My local quilt shop sells “candy sticks”…10″ squares…that I cut into quarters. The pinwheel blocks ended up being 8” when all put together.




Binding isn’t one of my strong points. I still can’t grasp the mitered corners. And I never know how to put the stupid things on…do I make a binding strip and sew it on? Do I add it to the quilt top and sew over? So I took down one of my Great Grandma’s quilts and gave it a good go over…she had sewed strips to the front of the quilt and then folded it over and hand-stitched to the back. That is what I did…and it turned out okay.
