Making the pinwheels was quite time consuming, there are a lot of seems to press. Sew, press, sew, press...but once I got started it was hard to stop!
Not the best photos...you can really tell they were taken at different times of day!
I'm am very happy with my progress and only have two more rows to sew together, then attach and then add a couple of borders and the top will be finished! I have to wait 'til Friday when some fabric I purchased should arrive to do the boarders.
Like my makeshift design wall?! I pinned my batting to the curtains!
In this photo only the first 4 rows are done, but since then I have completed all but the bottom right 2 rows.
I love the big pinwheel. Originally I added it to make the layout work since I need 59 pinwheel blocks and only had 56. I could have made 3 smaller blocks, but I thought one big one would be fun! So now I had one extra block and I decided to leave out a red one since the red ones seem to stand out more to me.
When I started this quilt it was going to me mine. After spending all of that time on Katie's quilt I wanted one that I could keep and admire and show off. Well, I started to feel bad that I would have something to give Katie and not her sister, Kayce (even though I'm sure she figured it would be awhile before I had anything for her since it took me so long to finish Katie's). So after going back and forth with myself I have decided to give this quilt to Kayce....so I will now be calling it Kayce's Quilt.
I was so excited to give Katie her quilt, but now I am waiting till this one is finished so I can give them to the girls at the same time. So I have a week and a half, but plan on finishing this one up this weekend since it is killing me to wait to give Katie hers!!!
Well... I'm off the finish up the last 2 rows and square it up so it is all ready for boarders when the fabric arrives!
