Whirlwind Pinwheel Quilt

So I’ve been pondering for some time what to make with this lovely stack of triangles called “Color Me Happy” by Moda.  Isn’t it darling?


I decided to cut it into smaller triangles, piece half of them to matching triangles in white, and add a white rectangle to the rest.  When put together, they create a pinwheel block I like to call Whirlwind.


I put of them together…and added a medium grey sashing.

Then more decisions…white cornerstones?

Or dark grey?

The grey won out.  Sometimes there is no wrong or right answer, just have to go with your favorite.

I think it turned out pretty well…



Time to shop for fabric to add a small border, backing, & binding!

BTW, I tested the labels from the last post by ironing one into fabric and throwing it in the washer & dryer twice…here’s how it compared to a new label:

New on top, washed on bottom.  The ink doesn’t look bad at all…yippee.

Until next time, HAPPY QUILTING!
