Friday Finale

Hi and welcome to the next installment of my quilt project saga.
In the last post you may remember I was wondering; lost amidst a pinwheel failure. (We won't mention the blog bloopers at this time).
Anyway, after the last post I went back to the drawing board and decided that the success of the pinwheels would not allude me. So I called in my brain's trust-The Bloke! And he came through for me yet again. I had the idea to try the new and larger blocks out on paper first. He duly cut them out and was sooner pinwheeling the papers together to make a perfect pinwheel block. So determined to make amends for my earlier indiscretion with the said rather small triangle pieces I set to cutting the correct amount of fabrics and then slicing and dicing and splicing until I had some blocks that were worthy of a photo shoot.

So intent was I on achieving this challenge the other day that I did not even open my new parcel of fabric that had arrived from Hawthorne Threads. I tell ya, this is a rarity, as usually the minute a parcel arrives its all paper and plastic in 30 seconds. Still I also like to delay a special moment. It's like when your eating a bag of lollies and you save the best ones till last...or is that just me???

So in the next post I hope to be able to show you more progress and then you will see how clever I really am :) Have a great weekend and do something you love, I am.


  1. Hi Jan,
    Your pinwheel blocks are great. I love them. They are so addictive once you get started and when you get them altogether they always look so wonderful and crisp.
    Nice to meet you
    hugs Deb

  2. Hi Deb
    Thank you so much for taking the time to write. I am verynew to this blogging game as you would have seen and when someone takes time in their day to write to me makes me feel great. I am so happy with the pinwheels as I have never done them before and although I have been sewing and quilting for about 12-18 months I never attempted anything flash. Now look out there will be pinwheels everywhere. Thanks for the hug, I love them. :) Please drop in from time to time, and say hi.
