I sewed together various size strips until I had somewhat of a square. Then, I squared it up to 5 1/2".
I paired it up with a tone on tone white and cut that 5 1/2" too. I drew a diagonal line on the wrong side of the white, and sewed on either side of the diagonal. After I pressed it open, I squared it to 5".
Pinwheels seemed like a fun thing to do, so I made 9. Together with some sashing and corner stones, I had a nice little quilt in short order. The teal border adds the finishing touch.
Last time I was out photographing a quilt, I came across this awesome little shed. Look at that colour!
I thought this a great place to come back for a picture.
I'll be back in a couple of days with pics of show and tell from our last Moda club meeting.
Have a wonderful week-end.
this little quilt was inspired by a scrap series seen at Pleasant Home.
It looks great! The pinwheels look perfect!!!
I would love to make a scrap quilt sometime...
What a great use of bits of scraps! No one would even know it was made of "left-overs". So cute! :o)
Cute, cute, cute! Perfect spot for a photo too.
How wonderful!! Your pinwheel quilt is beautiful, and I love how you made it with scraps!! So creative, and yes, that shed is a stunning color!! Have a great weekend! xo Heather
Such a cute little quilt! Love it!!
very clever and really cute! i love a fast finish!
I like the simplicity of this idea and love the end result. Smart thinking!
Very fun! Good going hitting the scraps!
Am loving this quilt! What a great way to use up scraps. And you're right, the shed is the most amazing colour - I wonder if the hardware store could match the colour in a fence paint?
it looks wonderful xx
I love it Carla! What a great use of scraps!!! Love the shot with the shed too.
Pretty close to perfect!
Great place for a photo shoot! The quilt looks great in person. The ladies at Moda Club are going to love all three of your quilts.
So cute. I love working with scraps :)
It looks great! I have been contemplating getting my scraps out today.
That little quilty is sooo cute. Yup think a book is order, then we would have all of those fabulous quilts in one place!
Very cute quilt--great photo-op!
I love this cute little quilt! And of course, the shed is a perfect spot! Yes, too bad I was so limited on time to visit. We will have to make it a bit of longer visit the next time I am in. I am just downloading my EQ7! Eeek - sooooo excited!
Good idea...I'll add that one to the bucket list!
That pinwheel pattern is so stinkin' cute! It feels great to make a dent in the scrap basket, huh?
Great idea! Organized my scraps the other day so am looking for ideas to use them up.
ADORABLE !!! Thanks for letting me know! I love it! ;)
