Pinwheel Quilt Top

Pinwheels are clearly a classic  block for a reason.  It is incredible how easily they come together, how they can show off a print and how much impact they can have.


Do you remember a little while ago I won eight 10x10 inch squares of fabric?  Well, I tossed in a ninth with a little background Kona and made a small quilt top.


This top is just under 1 meter square, making it really easy to use a single 1 meter x WOF for the back.  I have it layered  now using Pebbles in Pumpkin and am quilting it in straight, diagonal lines.


Sadly, though, I've run out of the thread I was using to quilt.  Just my luck!  If I can find a bit more in town I will quickly finish off this cutie.  It will eventually be for sale in the shop or at our next craft fair.

Love the pinwheels but can't understand the running out of thread thing. I know a great online shop very, very (very) close to you if you would like a recommendation!

Pin wheels - and several other blocks I can think of - are definitely classics for a reason. The quilt top looks fab. :o)
