here’s the other item I’m making for D’s preschool fundraiser…
a pinwheel quilt! I had a “batik strip set” (or something like that) that I bought over a year ago
from the Urban Craft Center, so I pulled it out, sewed pairs of strips, and then decided on this pinwheel hexagon layout
it’s actually turning out bigger than I had thought, which is awesome….
it’ll be a large-ish lap quilt/throw, I think…. we’ll see what happens when I sew it all together…
I pulled out my stickies (from my very short time in law school) and labeled all my stacks of rows, so hopefully I will be able to sew this up reasonably easily… (snort/guffaw/sigh)
look at all those triangles. I must REALLY love PBNS.
OK this is now totally making sense – yes, you're right, these pinwheel hexes are really clever and can also be pieced in lines with no need for inset seams (always a good thing!)
