Can it be true? The pattern I’ve been promising that I’d write for nearly a year now, is finally done?? Yup! I buckled down this week and got ‘er done, and she’s up in my shop! Whew. CHECK. Off the list. My, does that feel good!
This is definitely one of, if not my single most favorite quilt I’ve ever made. The simplicity of the pattern, and clean, crisp lines feel so fresh and modern to me, even though it’s an interpretation of a very old, historic- style of block. I also love how it’s a fun way to showcase a favorite assortment of prints, without using up a ton of yardage from each (each pinwheel requires 1 FQ or 1/8 yd off the bolt, and you’ll still have leftovers to play with).
This pattern is entirely paper pieced- so if you love paper piecing, you’re going to love it. And if you don’t love paper piecing….you should learn to love it. Ha! Just kidding. Seriously though, it’s all paper pieced so just be aware. Thankfully, the piecing is super straightforward so even the faint of heart should do just fine. I did go ahead and put together a foundation paper piecing tutorial though, which might come in handy for those who are new to this or want a refresher. I’ll be adding it to my tutorials page, and the link is also included in the pattern.
For those of you who’ve been waiting for this one- I hope you enjoy it! It’s brought me so much joy, smiling at me from my wall every day, and I hope it does the same for you!
