Twirling Hexagons

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.

This was a fun one to make, and to quilt!
