Welcome

By Dawn, Aug 1 2015 12:43PM



Hope you’re having a lovely summertime - It’s been quite a breezy one here, just the weather for spinning pinwheels! Our fourth block before piecing and quilting is one of my favourites, it reminds me of happy seaside holidays - pinwheels spinning in the sea breeze, bright and colourful in the sunshine.


In total 4 pinwheels are needed for our Skinny Dippin’ Quilt, each one is made up from 4 very easy to make “ flying geese” units and 4 plain rectangles.


Taking a little extra care early on to cut out pieces to precise measurements, and checking a ¼” seam allowance is used when joining pieces together, makes it easier to match the centre points of the pinwheel, when it comes to joining the units together.


In the completed quilt the pinwheels can be used in the side borders, or even an extra row if you'd like to make a longer Skinny Dippin' Quilt.


Full instructions for making Flying Pinwheels here.


Happy sewing x


ps. the little pinwheel pictured sunning itself in the title pic, is made from Fast2Fuse, using a super-duper tutorial by Destri which can be found here :)
