Pinwheel, Pinwheel...

With all the Block of the Month work going on around I here, I was really itching to tackle something that could actually be completed in... oh, less than a year maybe. When the mailman delivered this Lark by Amy Butler design roll, it lasted about an hour before it went under the needle.
The top measures 36" square, so perfect for a baby quilt, wall hanging, doll quilt etc. I used a combo of strip and paper piecing to put her together. It's funny how a very new skill can quickly become part of your every day bag of tricks.


I had planned to list this in the shop when it was finished, but my sewing space has very bare, yellow walls that are sort of calling to the larks...so, we'll see.

Oddly, I am completely out of quilt batting, so I'll need to make a run to get some in the morning. Then it's on to quilting. I think I've worked out a machine quilting design and am now contemplating what hand stitching fun I might add to the riot. Hmmm....
