The final block was released last Thursday but I did not get to it until tonight. Quilting and tax season as an accountant clearly do not mix, between working overtime and being exhausted when I’m not working I’ve been spending a lot less time in my sewing room.
Block 16 was designed by Vanessa at V and Co, and is called Parade of Pinwheels. I decided to take this block in a different direction. In the original all the pinwheels are the same multi-colour fabric, for mine I decided to do each one a single colour from the Sunkissed line. I also used grey as my solid instead of white to tie it to the rest of the blocks (granted the grey is really light, almost white).
All cut out:
I had a new toy tonight to make quilting easier. My husband bought me an iPad, I didn’t think about its quilting application until I realized I didn’t have to print out patterns anymore! Just another reason to love it.
This blocks turned out really nice:
On Thursday the final assembly instructions will be released, I can’t wait to see how this all comes together. Here are all my 16 blocks together, in no particular order:
Hopefully I will have time to do the assembly this weekend and get to quilting!
