New Fabric and a Pinwheel Quilt-Along

More fabric to share!!!

I have a half yard each of the orange fabric ~ am building up a stash for THIS quilt by Cluck.Cluck.Sew…I love Allison’s quilts ~ I’ve made a few of them already.

The other two on the left side are one yard each of Lila Tueller’s Eden…a fabric line that I absolutely ADORE! Big sigh. I want a bolt of all of her fabric lines…Eden, Santorini, Isabella, Spirit, Woodland Bloom, and Soire’e. That woman’s fabric is to die for! So cheery…you just want to do a Teri Garr (Young Frankenstein) thing…Roll in ze hay! with her fabric.

Now…onto the quilt-along. My friend April and I each bought a pinwheel quilt kit from Connecting Threads a while back….and now we are going to quilt them together. Her in Michigan and me in Nevada. 🙂

I have all of my 2-7/8″ strips cut out…they will soon be 2-7/8″ squares. Both of us will be modifying our quilts as we both think 56×56 is way too small. I’m going to add one more row all the way around and then probably add more to the length of the quilt. I also swapped out their cream fabric for a white on white print.

    Ah, didn’t know you were doing white-on-white. Nice!

    I’m changing the inner and outer borders to aqua potpourri and tomato sachet. I think my extra rows will be random rectangles sewn together to make a long row of smaller stripes, like piano keys.

    Back to cutting!
