Pinwheel Party...


I've been making some pinwheel blocks (Fabric: Bliss by Bonnie & Camille for Moda--Pattern "Paper Roses" by Joanna Figueroa)...this block with the red and paisley might just be my favorite...

Oh, but I love these four too...

And the red floral on blue background with the aqua dots...I ♥ it too!  Finished quilt top coming soon to a blog near you!

Hi Sherri, thanks for coming over to my blog. I always just get a 'kick' of joy when I bring your page up. Your pinwheel blocks are scrumptious. I wish I could just grab them up, and bring them over to my studio!!

This is going to be such a beautiful quilt!

Terriaw said...

Oolala, love them! I especially love that combo with the red and pink fabrics. Pinwheels are so fun to make. I'm liking this block you are using where the points of the pinwheels stick out past each other, giving it more movement.

Nicole said...

I had sworn off pinwheels (don't ask), but seeing your blocks has made me do a complete turn around!

Sophie said...

Hi Sherri,

A friend on our (the American Quilter's Society) Facebook Fan Page listed your blog as her favorite quilting blog so we had to come back for another visit. You have great projects and a lovely blog, keep up the good work- we hope to see more from you in the future!

Teala said...

I love, love, love pinwheels!! I have been stalking your blog for some time and saw you last week at the track meet in your little town. I soooo wanted to stop and talk to you but didn't want to be a creepy stalker! :) Maybe next time?? I do love all of your quilts and hope to someday meet you and LEARN from you.

Ouch!..Ouch!!! These are so cute they are hurting me Sherri!!!

Kim G said...

Love this block and the fabric!! What size is it and where can I find the instructions for it?

Sherri said...

Hi Kim G...I couldn't reply to your question...so I'm hoping you'll come back and read this comment. The block is an 8" block, and the pattern is "Paper Roses" by Fig Tree & Company. There is a link to the pattern right at the beginning of the post...and I believe FatQuarterShop also carries this. Hope that helps! Have a great day!
