Pinwheels and Prairies!

Another little quilt I'll be teaching next term is this cot quilt, called Pinwheels and Prairies!

Finished Size 44" x 54"

I was gifted some '30's Playtime' fabrics (by Chloe's Closet) and thought they would make a cute baby quilt.

Pinwheels are fun and popular to make, and so are prairie points.  Sometimes quilt borders can be a bit boring - I love how the prairie points add interest to this little quilt.

I had a bit of fun with the quilting too!  You can see it more clearly on the back.  The central section is quilted like a diamond, with lines in the outer sections running in the opposite direction.

When I write up the pattern for this quilt, there will be the option to make a single bed size too.

So that's one happy Ted!  (Really must paint my props ladder!)

Hope you've been enjoying some lovely sunshine this week!

  6. Very pretty. It's very similar to the Moda Bakeshop Pinwheel Baby Quilt which was my first ever quilt.
