Pinwheel Block #6

I made block 6 of the Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along.


Last week I mentioned that I wanted to change block #4 to this block, so these blocks were half done. Now I will wait until the end to see what pinwheel block I will add.

I also finished sewing the binding on the Pinwheels in my Garden mini quilt (17" x 21").

All signed and hung in my bathroom. I think just about every room in my house now has a quilt!! LOL!!
It is from the book Fat Quarter Quilting by Lori Smith. The changes I made to the pattern were - I used 2" binding, instead of 1 3/4", I needed 5 strips for the binding, pattern asked for 4. Also there is the error in the book for the number of squares needed, for the 1 7/8" blocks the pattern calls for 14 of the brown and 14 of the pink, actually needs 28 of each colour, and 56 for the cream are needed instead of the 28 called for. Lori Smith emailed me that this is correct.

Have a great day!

Neat. The other day I put the quilt out of the Nickel Quilts book on my "Want to do" section of my blog. And it's made of this very block! I love them.

I think the bathroom is the PERFECT place for a quilt!! Yours looks terrific!

When I saw this week's block I thought of you as you had mentioned that you were contemplating that change to the previous block. I, along with you, will just have to wait and see, but I do have a few in mind to add to the quilt and make it twin sized. We'll just have to be patient together. (I don't like patient)
