But wait, I have a few things to share before we get to the quilt :) First off, I have to show you my UPS delivery :)
I got the front package on Monday from the Fat Quarter Shop and the one in the back came this afternoon. I am all ready for the Super Mario QAL over at Cut To Pieces.
Man, this quilt is going to be AWESOME, but I have to be honest, I am a bit worried about the 1.5" squares.... ;D ...and I am choking on the fabric price... but I'll get over it. My hubby does not care too much about the $$$ because it's for him :) You see, I have to be tricky.
In addition to this little bit of fun fabric, my sister, Aly, and I hammered out the details for three quilts I will be making for her. The first one will be for the wall in her living room made with Granny Squares in this fabric...
The second quilt is for her bedroom. It will be almost exactly like Kate's Over the Rainbow quilt. We ordered 3 jelly rolls of Robert Kaufman's Tidbits and Treasures.
The third quilt is for her friend who has end stage breast cancer :( I am going to do a raw edge applique with the scraps from my Retro Flower Quilt.
So that is all for my shopping exploits for today. It's a good thing that Aly was paying today :D
Now, for the unveiling of the Red & White Pinwheel Quilt :) Are you ready?
I did straight line quilting with my walking foot. The pinwheel on the back measures 22" square.
I pieced the back to make the fabric I had work :) Can you say "Frugal?" ... I mean CHEAP! ;D
I did the binding mostly with the red and white stripe, but then used the left over 2.5" strips from my mom's Red & White log cabin pillow from yesterday.
So, I couldn't help adding the bunnies for a bit of the photo shoot. Isn't Baby Bunny cute?
Fatty had to get a shot in too :)
The finished quilt measures 59"x48"
The following pictures are close up's of the blocks. WARNING!!! ...there are a million! ...as usual :)
This is my favorite section of the quilt :)
