This quilt is one my family made for a cousin. So, I had a hand in piecing this one together. The hexagon blocks are made by strip piecing and cutting out triangles, then sewing them together in half hexagons. Like this.
I gave the pinwheels some spin and did swirls in the center. For the border, I did a feather on each side of the little pieced strip. And in that I made a simple loop in each piece.
Swirls here to make them spin!
I used a pink thread to match the border and it blended in with the flowery prints too.
The feathers filled in the angled spaces on the sides really well.
The local Relay for Life steak supper and auction is quite the event around here. I had several of these colored scrappy improve pieced blocks laying around and thought I could sew them up into a couple of baby quilts real quick to put on the auction.
And I wanted to try out my new circle templates, so I got a bit fancy.
I switched to a pink thread and did a heart pattern in the pink areas.
And the blue one is pretty much the same.
I did blue swirls in this one.
My 'blocks' are 10 inches unfinished, 9.5 in finished. So these quilts are about 28 inches square.
I bound them with some leftover coordinating binding pieces I had laying around.
