This week's quilt is my own original design and unfortunately there is no label on it.
It was probably made in 1998, and the reason I'm thinking this, is that I taught a week-end workshop of it in November 1998. But ....... I'm guessing it did not get quilted until 2008, because that's when I entered it in our guild's quilt show.
Oh, not bad.......only 10 years!
The pinwheels were made by sewing 2 brightly coloured strips on either side of a wider beige strip and then cut diagonally like this:
and sewn to a large brown triangle.
The narrow diagonal piece, cut off the pinwheels, were inserted between two striped borders.
The borders with mitered corners frame the quilt nicely.

I really like the colours in this quilt, maybef a man's quilt!
Finally, a SUNNY day in Kenogami.
Have a great day.
