This week: Pinwheels

I used the Accuquilt Go! cutter to cut the half-square triangles to make the pinwheels.  On the purple quilt, I made 12 and for the blue one, I made 16.  I used Island Batik fabrics for both quilts.  The blue I used a strip from a “Stash Builders” bundle, a basics and some yardage from “Faded Blue Jeans.”  The purple used a variety of fabrics.

In this video, I discuss what I did to “make it fit” and the extra quilting that I did.


SEW … next week we’re adding arrows to the quilt.

How are you doing with your Round Robin?

A Friday Finish

Last week on Facebook, I challenged guild members to make a donation quilt and post it on Facebook on April 3.  Of course, I HAD to make one as well.  I rummaged through my “kid” fabric and found several Dr. Suess blocks left over from another quilt.  I made 8 more blocks and ended up with this quilt.  It was hard, but it was done before April 2 was in the history books.IMG_6413

  1. I love the purple pinwheel blocks, both are great. How long is your sew along happening and is it too late to join in? I’ll be happy to share it in my linky party. Thank you for linking up last week.

  3. Hi Gail

    I’m trying to make the pinwheel Having a problem with the size of them. What size should the square be to start. Thanks Brenda

    • Hi Brenda,
      I’m not sure. I don’t use squares … I used the Accuquilt Go! die for the 2″ finished HST. And, when I don’t use the Accuquilt, I use the Easy Angle Ruler. However, I think if you use squares that are 3″ and sew diagonally across – they should be big enough to trim to 2.5″ square (which will give you 2″ finished).
      The beauty of this round robin is that it doesn’t have to be exactly like mine! In looking back, I sort of wish I had a plain block between the pinwheels … that way you could see the pinwheels as pinwheels … as it is, it looks like a lot of HST put together in some sort of order.
      I look forward to seeing your Round Robin!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  4. Fun Dr. Seuss finish! I am enjoying see your two round robin quilts side to side, it really illustrates how even when you do the same thing, you can change it so it looks completely different!

    • Thanks, Emily! It’s fun to have the guild challenges – especially when we can’t meet! A lot of people posted baby & comfort quilts on the guild’s FB page! So FUN!!!
      And, yes, I’m really glad to be doing two quilts that are the same, but different! It’s neat to see what others are doing as well!
      Happy Quilting, my friend! 🙂
