This coming Monday evening, September 14, I will present my “Cutting Up” lecture to the Devine Quilters in Columbia, SC. If you live nearby, join us at Shandon Presbyterian Church at 7 p.m.
As I made the Pinwheels, I realized that I really liked the blocks that were mostly dark. The figure-ground reversal of mosly white Pinwheels, not so much. But I couldn’t just throw the light twin blocks away! My first idea to remedy the situation was to use a bright, bold sashing. I found an orange-on-orange plaid at The Sew and Quilt Store in Killeen, TX.
The orange sashing helped, but the white Pinwheels still looked very white. I decided to use variegated thread and quilt spikey spirals in all the blocks. Happily, the quilting adds color and movement!
This was a fun quilt to make by a very quick method. Let me know if you try it!
