Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Blocks
I’ve had my eye on this quilt along for a few months now. Naturally, now that those who’ve been quilting along with Rachel’s posts are FINISHED with their quilts, I decided to throw in and make one. Oh well.
I decided to use my Rural Jardin layer cake for this project. I’m using a cream colored Bella solid with it, and am excited to see how the whole red, white and blue with a twist theme works in this quilt. I had a red, white and blue quilt all planned to make in May, but that’s not happening right now so this looks like a fun, fast substitute.
Last night I put together the first two blocks, making two blocks of each. Part way into the cutting I realized that you can’t really get the first block out of a layer cake piece unless you have two of the same print in the stack. I decided to throw in two secondary prints instead of one, but used prints that are similar in color. This let me alternate them.
I like how they turned out. Block Two was simple and fast. Here they are:
Two down, six to go. This will be fun! Anyone want to join me? (Em, have you cut into your layer cake yet?)
i do want to join you but I this looks harder than you are making it sound. How do I do the cuts?
I’ve just seen you’re finished quilt top in Flickr! I’m about to do the quilt-along tag-along-later too, I love this quilt!
