Another Donation Quilt

Earlier this year, I made a bunch (around 150) of scrappy pinwheels to use in donation quilts. I have finished three quilts--the final top is done, but not quilted--and I have only one pinwheel left! :)


I chose to do these quilts with different layouts; on this third one I set the pinwheel with alternate half-square triangle blocks.


Must have caught a breeze--the bottom really is straight!

Green with HST alternate blocks








These are the first two quilts:

Orange and on-point





Straight layout with sashing and cornerstones


The final quilt is a simple pinwheel to pinwheel layout--I'll post a picture after it is finished. I have enjoyed trying out the different layouts; I've never focused on just one block in different layouts before.


I've been working on several other things, but some are gifts, so I can't show them yet. I'm enjoying the summer break and being able to sew every day.

I'm linking with Fiber Tuesday 115 at The Quilting Room with Mel.
