When I saw Hetty's pretty Louisiana blocks, I immediately remembered the pinwheels from my childhood that we sometimes received at birthday parties. I was excited about trying to make some miniature pinwheels and went searching in my scraps. I found a baggie with some rectangle scraps 1 1/2' x 2 1/2" and decided to make my blocks around the measurements of these pieces.
Here is the first block:
I LOVED it so much that I dug into the rest of my scrap rectangles and my scrap bag, and made these blocks:
These 9 blocks will make a mini quilt 12". I loved sewing these blocks and could happily make a bed sized quilt from them if I had nothing else to do :) Will I stop at 9 or keep on pinwheeling?!?
Welcome to our weekly block party! This is a group blog for sharing our successes and struggles with the week's chosen block. The challenge of completing the weekly block is open to everyone. The block and a link to its online instructions will be posted on Fridays. If you would like to join us, please follow the link to Hetty's blog, or leave a comment on a post indicating you'd like posting priviledges here. I'll be happy to add you as an author -- even if you are only doing some of the blocks :-)
Authors to this blog are asked to label each post with their name and the week# of the block represented by the post. This way we'll all be easily able to see all the blocks for each week as well as all the blocks by any one person. Thanks for your cooperation!
