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?)
