Fast Pinwheel

Quilt #12

Fast Pinwheel

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.

11" block

The narrow diagonal piece, cut off the pinwheels, were inserted between two striped borders.

mitered corner

The borders with mitered corners frame the quilt nicely.

back and binding

I really like the colours in this quilt, maybef a man's quilt!

Finally, a SUNNY day in Kenogami.

Have a great day.
