It’s a Party…

…of Pinwheels!

The pinwheel party quilt top is finished.  Since I don’t have enough fabric for a complete back, I am going to have fun being creative to combine various left-over fabrics from the quilt.


Many Mini Pinwheels

Luckily I used the chain piecing technique to create my 96 half square triangles for my 24 mini-pinwheels that are 2.5 square inches.  I am all ready for sashing tomorrow to finish the top of my pinwheel quilt.


Pinwheel Party Update

I just printed the instructions for week 11 of the Pinwheel Party.  I then realized that I am still a blocks behind schedule.  Here is an update of my five blocks:

Also, it is not too late to join the party.  All the instructions are posted on The Twiddle Tails Blog:


Ready for Quilt Alongs

Not only am I very excited for the Pinwheel Party and the Mystery Jelly Roll Quilt Alongs to start today, my mom is also excited.  We visited a local quilt shop, Chester County Quilting, to pick out her fabrics.  Here is a preview of her fabrics:

My First Quilt Along

I am starting my blogging journey by joining Anina’s Pinwheel Party.  You too can join the party!

This past weekend, my mom and I ventured for the first time to Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington, New Jersey.  Here is a sneak peek of my fabrics for this party:
