lap pinwheel quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My mother now wants me to show my niece how to quilt.... It would be fun but who knows if it will work out. The fact that I was asked, granted by family, is what makes me proud.

What you will need

  • Different cotton fabrics - purples
  • blues and greens since these are my favorite colors

Q&A with readingnut

patticole asked:
Striking colors! I say either combination will be just great. On first impression, my eye prefers the dark green center, but the light green is a "fresher" feel, more like spring. I would have a hard time deciding, too!
readingnut answered:
I've decided to go with the light green centers as the more dominant one with the blue stripe as narrow inner border and light blue butterflies for wider border. We'll see!
Surfside6 asked:
The light green is my favorite. It's fun to see how different they can be, isn't it?
readingnut answered:
Ended up going with the light green although it was a tough choice! Now that the weather has cooled down a bit I can hopefully finish making the blocks.
Surfside6 asked:
It is a small section to see, but the turqoise and white print looks just like one I just bought for a quilt.......just because. So pretty. I think your mix of colors is perfect.
readingnut answered:
I'm planning on using that print in a wall hanging (when I finish the quilt of course). Too many things! There is way too much to choose from.
