As I posted on January 6th, I am challenging myself to use one or more hoarded fat quarters (FQs) each month this year. Today I present, “Playtime with Pinwheels,” my newest baby quilt design. The fabric pull, pictured below, shows several FQs that I received as a “thank you” gift from Tarheel Quilters Guild members. (The guild’s tradition is to bless outgoing officers with FQs at the December meeting.)
If you compare the fabric pull with the picture of the quilt, you’ll notice that I substituted light purple for teal. Although the FQ of theme print contains teal, I felt the teal shown above would have over-powered the pastel feel of the quilt. Would you like to make this quilt? You can find the link to printer-friendly instructions on my Patterns page. Just click on “Playtime with Pinwheels.” Caveat: I wrote basic measurement and cutting guidelines rather than a step-by-step tutorial because I assume that you have some quilting experience.
A baby girl is going to be happily fascinated with this quilt, and I, in turn, am happy to have used several FQs from my stash for this project.
What about you? Will you rise to meet the FQ challenge? Please send me a picture of your project by 15 February, and I’ll share it with blog readers.
