My Weekend Quilting Projects

 Back in 2007 I made this child’s Pinwheel Quilt from a pattern I found on the Moda site (http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/03/pinwheel-baby-quilt.html) using the Snipets fabrics. Well, when I went to my precious dermatologist at UVA last week, I learned she was going to be moving to NYC and that she had had a little girl since I saw her last year. I knew immediately what I had to do. I remembered this quilt and decided to make one with smaller 6” pinwheel squares. I started on it this afternoon and have competed 4 squares...from the stash! I did have to run to my quilting shop to get some good off-white for triangles and strips, but I guess that’s still staying true to my resolution to stick to the stash except for needed backing, binding, and emergencies.  All my whites were prints, and they looked horrible.

Sorry my photos are so crummy. Terrible lighting in the house at this time of the day.





I am using all of my 30’s baby fabrics plus others I can find. Am still looking thru my buckets, but here are some I have pulled. Hope to get at least another 4 squares done tonight.

I posted this runner on Wednesday, but I have now made a small “heart” templet which I am going to hand quilt on the white strips. This is my Slow Sunday Stitching for the weekend. It’s the kind of handwork I love to do. It is so soothing and downright FUN!


 These are some of the felt and fabric stuffed hearts I’m making for friends again
 this year.

I am linking up with Sew Darn Crafty at Karen’s Sew Many Ways and Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy’s Quilts. Be sure to check them out. They are both filled with wonderful pieces and inspiration.

  1. Love the prints for the baby quilt. So sweet of you as always to do that. I finally found all my hearts from last year. My goodness I couldn't find all of them. So fun to have them to decorate with. Feeling better. Wow, it zapped me. Sorry to hear you had it as well. Take care. (((((HuGS))))

  6. This is such a precious little quilt. I agree sometimes you just need the right fabric. I have been trying to bust my stash. Working on quilt number four, and the quilts I have made from my stash are my favorites.
