Purple Pinwheels

Here's my very first finish for 2013!
A quilt that began ONLY because
someone gave me her leftover triangles
from a quilt she had made!
I began by sewing them into pinwheels...
and kept going!!!
I RARELY know where a quilt is going to take me!
It's always an ADVENTURE!!!
 
I DID learn while making this quilt...
that pinwheels LIKE to go the same way!
Hopefully I'll put my thinking cap on
the next time I attempt pinwheels.
:/
You'll notice MINE don't GO the same way!
Ah well.....
I marched on and finished it!
I doubt the new owner will have
ANY idea the mistake I made!!!
LOL!!!
 
Pretty vines!

Loop-de-loop lines in the quilting!

and.....
Almost READY to give away!!!
 
I'll be stitching the binding down this week!
 
We're getting away as a family
RIGHT before
school, work and schedules!!!
 
Have a great weekend!

  7. What a sweet quilt. Thank you for sharing the process with us. I don't think it matters at all that they go different directions. Who made the rule that they should all go one way? Cheers! Toni

  8. And the fun is definitely in the adventure! Very sweet quilt. I think the pinwheels going in different ways gives it character.:)

  10. It looks terrific, Beth. I did the same thing with my first pinwheel quilt. It's funny because I would not had noticed had you not mentioned it.
