Before I had even finished my first bag made from Nanette’s “Mixed Bag to Quilt” pattern I knew I would be making more; I also knew that I would be making one from Patisserie…problem was Patisserie wasn’t available yet in yardage, so I patiently waited. Now, a few fat quarters and a yard later my bag is finished. And the zipper bag I made the other day is perfect to go inside (a matching checkbook cover will follow soon)!
I purchased Joanna’s booklet The Pastry Shoppe which has six different Turnover patterns and started the quilt “Cherry Turnovers.” Seven blocks are finished…eighteen to go. I love these quilt blocks…they go together wonderfully…and pinwheels just might be my new favorite block!
Oh, and a little update on my leftover pinwheel blocks from Nanette’s “All Dressed Up” quilt. They’ve found a home in a new quilt of my own design which is coming together quite nicely. It might have been finished by now…but somehow about 20 rectangles of Kona “white” ended up in a quilt pieced entirely from Kona “snow.” (Note to self: keep the Kona “white” and “snow” clearly separated)!
