Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting- cutting, piecing. Machine applique

Pattern Description:

The half-square triangle blocks form a pinwheel within a pinwheel pattern (I love pinwheels! I love the "movement" they give a quilt.) The "energy" and cheerfulness of the fabrics and double-pinwheel design made me think of how Spring can be kind of a "wild" time, when everything starts popping up like crazy! The quilt has a machine appliqued border with "modern" flowers. (I happen to love the border on this. It's one of my favorite designs.)

56" square size makes this a very "do-able" project- use it as a table topper, bed topper, or lap quilt.

  • Green Dragonfly Print- 1 1/8 yards (blocks, borders, appliqu)
