This is an old UFO that I want to finish this year. It is a pinwheel stack-n-whack, with floral swirl pinwheels. When the blocks are joined, the background triangles form other pinwheels.
By switching out the colours in the background triangles, I get different colours of pinwheels. I am making the blocks one at a time, since I don’t trust myself to get the colours in the right order if I do a bunch at once. Each block is different, and I have a master layout that I am following.
I have about half the blocks done, so I should be able to finish this year. This design offers a lot of possibilities for free-motion quilting if I can get my skills up.
I still like the fabric and colours that I chose for this, but the only regret that I have is the floral is a pretty cheap, low-quality fabric. At the time I bought the fabric for this, we were on a pretty tight budget, and since I needed 6 – 8 yards of floral fabric for the design. Even now, I would have to take a few deep breaths before buying that much of a high quality quilting fabric. Still, it is good for learning a new technique, and it will be a quilt that will be washed and used on a bed.
