Look! I've been playing with the Calico Spool pattern. One in a bright novelty fabric with black background and then some "leftovers" from my 30's Pinwheel Stars quilt.
Maybe I've fallen off the end of the Earth but they sure make me giggle and smile. :-)
Can you say HUGE???
Most evenings you can find me watching baseball on TV, however, with no games the last two evenings I've been chained to my sewing machine. I have almost finished my 30's Pinwheel Star quilt that I shamelessly copied from Doe (thank you, Doe). The center is finished - need to add the corner triangles and the borders. The pattern calls for piano keys on the border but I need to think about that a day or two. This is going to be a HUGE quilt - 95" x 112". No, I didn't pay attention to the dimensions when I started - 50 blocks - no big deal. Whoa, baby! LOL
I'm anxious to get back to my Spool Blocks and the dark version of the Pinwheel Star.
Giving credit where is due: Please, please do not give me credit for this quilt - the pattern shows it done in 30's with a yellow center. I saw it on Doe's blog with red centers and thought it was beautiful. So, now here's mine - just like Doe's!
