Another Pinwheel Quilt


I'm entering this quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. Check it out, enter one of your quilts, or vote on all the beautiful quilts! I think I'll put mine in the throw quilt group. 

So, I've been trying to use up some of my fabric. I'm always buying more, then I don't end up getting to all my millions of projects swimming around in my head!

 I had a layer cake and a panel of the Cherish Nature collection by Deb Strain, and finally decided to use it! I paired dark and light colors together to make some easy pinwheel blocks. Knowing I was just shy of the 20 blocks that I needed, I decided to add a couple of panel pieces in with the blocks to make the quilt the size I wanted.

I also used some panel pieces for the pieced backing, along with Kona Cotton in Natural. The batting is my normal 100% cotton batting, so it's warm, but still breathable. I quilted a meandering stipple all over, and finished with a chocolate brown for the binding. 

By the way, this quilt is for sale in my shop! :) I love this fabric, with all the little birds, bees, eggs, and trees. It would make a great quilt for a nature lover, or for anyone who enjoys these earthy colors. The quilt is a nice throw size for the couch, or even a large baby quilt. 

Here's a better view of the back...

...and a closer view of the quilting and binding. 

I'm hoping to add more quilts to my shop soon. :)
Hope you're having a great weekend!

I love the tree and the nest - very clever. :) And the back is so fun. Thanks for sharing!

Very cute quilt. Love the effect of the panel for two of the pinwheels. Really makes the quilt pop.
