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!
