Pinwheels in the Sky

Hi everyone! Number five is finished! The blue bottom thread arrived in good time for the weekend and I managed to finish the quilting late last night. I’m so pleased I used blue for the back now, even though I questioned this decision last weekend when I couldn’t finish it. I was really quite concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find the same thread again as I’d used a pre-wound bobbin from a set of 12 different ones bought by DH for Christmas. Thankfully it turned out alright in the end, thanks to the wonders of the internet :-)

This is the back. I attached the cream binding to the front by machine and then hand stitched it to the back of the quilt this morning.

I pieced the back with blue and cream to inject a bit of interest and I wanted to show off the swirls on both colours. Here is the finished quilt.

I’m also busy with an autumnal jelly roll quilt top which I started while I was waiting for my thread for this one. I’ve taken a few photos so there might be a tutorial coming up soon. I just have to put the blocks together and the top will be done :-) It’s been quite a productive week considering I’ve been at work……

  6. Well, if it’s not too rude to say, I love the back! (The front is nice too of course!) Very nice swirly quilting.

    • No, each to their own ;-) One day, I might do a whole quilt from a plain piece of fabric. I’ll have to improve the quilting first though! Still loving your tatting by the way :-)

  7. Nice!!! I really like the quilting!

  8. I bought a charm pack just to try this! I can’t wait! though I promised myself I had to finish the other 2 projects currently going. I love this so much!

    • Now I can’t wait to see it! No pressure of course :-) Did you decide not to accept the Liebster blog award? No problem if you did, I just wondered :-) Love your elephant by the way!!

      • I will accept just haven’t had a decent block of time to sit and decide who I want to nominate. hopefully this week sometime I will be able to get to it! thanks so much too!
