Hi.

Welcome to my little blog! Here I am in my sewing room, I hope you'll stay a while and see what there is to see.

Blue Pinwheel Blocks

Guess who this tutorial is from? Red Pepper Quilts (of course)! I always seem to gravitate to her style! These are just some tester blocks to see if I wanted to make a whole project out of them, and I like the look. This is the Kaleidoscope Quilt Block and the finished design looks marvelous! Go here to look at Rita's along with the tutorial!

I chose blue for mine because I seem to have a LOT of blue fabric pieces that I need to use up! I gravitate to blues and pinks when I'm sewing, so I've tried to start adding the other colors to my stash as well. I was mostly deficient on orange, green, and purple. Oh, and yellow! I have lots of white, black, and red to go with my excess of blue and pink.

This is a very simple paper pieced pattern if you are wanting to learn that skill, this may be a good starter project for you! I think I may make a few more to equal nine or twelve, and use them as the center of a "modern" baby quilt. I'll see what it looks like when I actually have a few more together and then make a  decision!
