Pinwheel Dance

Pinwheel DanceThis quilt pattern goes by many names, but when I looked at it I saw Pinwheels Dancing!  It is an intriguing pattern of many shapes besides pinwheels.  Do you see the canoes of light yellow and light green?  The back and binding are bright yellow with small orange sprinkled throughout. This 34″ square quilt would be fun for a baby starting tummy time with large areas of bright colors to study.  Placed on a table held down by a vase of flowers continuing the cheery mood of the fabric would be beautiful. Made of cotton fabric and cotton batting, I used variegated thread on top and a yellow-orange thread on the back to do meandering edge to edge quilting.

Big Bright and Bold

Big Bright and BoldThis is a modern big block quilt, a wonderful show place for fabric that would lose the affect if cut into small pieces for a traditional quilt. The four star centers and border are perfect for the fruit and bird print. Bright colors of purple, blue and red along with pale yellow and a medium yellow simply pull colors from the print. The back is red with a blue border and easily shows off the large leaves and swirls covering the quilt edge to edge. This quilt measures approximately 58″ square and is made from cotton fabric and batting. Big Bright and Bold Back
