A Someday (in September) Quilt

I don't have a whole lot in the way of finished projects to share right now... I'm feeling a bit of the familiar frustration caused by wanting to work on things and just not having those stretches of time I need to do so. That happens with a big family. I'll have to settle for sharing something with you which will hopefully become a great quilt for my in-laws for their wedding anniversary. The anniversary is not until September, so I have hope that I'll be able to carve out the time to finish it by then! It will be a Pinwheel/Windmill Quilt (does anyone know the "real" name for this block??), using the Twiggy collection by Sanae for Moda and will be queen sized. I had it in my head at one point to hand quilt this with perle 8, but I think I'll see how long the piecing takes before I get my heart set on that :)

Here's the first block... and my prim rose - I just REALLY love her! :)

  1. I love this block! My mom made a Civil War sampler that has this black in it, it's one of my favorites in that quilt. I think the fabrics you've chosen are making it look more contemporary. :)
