I know, I know another project, like I don’t have enough already started. This quilt by Sew, Mama, Sew
I had already spotted and printed out the tutorial and stuck it in my folder of quilts I would like to make. So then a little bit later I am reading Lovely Little Handmades blog
and read that her and Knitty Bitties
are starting a quilt along for August making this Pinwheels in the Park quilt. I could not resist joining them. Read all about it HERE
I ordered up some fat quarters from Kerri’s etsy shop Sew deerly loved
. They are Japanese, Lecien Flower Sugar in colors red, blue and pink. The white fabric is Kona cotton white I got from the Fat Quarter shop
. I will use these for my Pinwheel in the Park quilt. Not sure yet what I will use for the back of the quilt.
I thought I should make up a practice block just to make sure I could make this quilt. I did not want to slash into my beautiful new fabric without a little practice first. I am still kind of a Newbie in quilting. I made this one out of some leftover Halloween fabric from last year. I love it! Now I am really excited to get started. I can see doing this quilt in different fabrics themed for the holidays.
The quilt tutorial is HERE
The schedule for the quilt along:
August 1-7 Cut Fabric
August 8-14 Sew Blocks
August 15-21 Finish up Blocks & Sew quilt top
August 22-31 Quilt & Bind
The quilt along leaders are Lovely Little Hand Mades
& Knitty Bitties
so go on over and check out their progress. There was also a Flicker page just started for this quilt HERE
I am planning to cut up my blocks tonight after Chloe goes to bed. I don’t think I will be able to keep on track with the quilt along schedule, just because I have a lot going on right now. I am going to try my best and should be able to catch up if I get behind and not be too far off the schedule.
