Night and Day - edited Saturday evening
I found Doe's blog not long after she started blogging! She's incredibly talented and an absolute delight. While reading her blog I saw a picture of her Pinwheel Star blocks/quilt and I was downright smitten. I HAD to make that quilt so I called and ordered the pattern. Yes, I'm a shameless copycat, however, I chatted with Doe and she said it's OK - thank you Doe! I assembled 28 of the required 50 blocks and then I had a light bulb moment - how would these blocks looks in darker colors???? I've pulled some lights and darks and made the first block this morning. What an incredible difference! As my Sweetie said, "they're like night and day" - he's right. :-)
The 30's blocks will be set on point as shown in the pattern but I'm not sure how I'm going to set the other blocks. I'm still playing - LOL.
I've seen a similar quilt in the Nickle Quilts book, however I didn't want to cut everything into 5" squares so I just followed the instructions from my Pinwheel Star pattern.
edit: I've just spent several hours responding to the many e-mailed comments that I'd been saving. Thank you again for playing my silly game, helping me celebrate my first blogiversary, for visiting my blog, for taking a few minutes to leave a comment or two and especially for all the inspiration I get from you! And, a special thank you to my Sweetie for coming up with the game to celebrate my blogiversary. It was a ton of fun!
