Patti’s Teal ~n~ Purple Pinwheel Quilt!

Share

Patti Spooner pieced this vibrant Pinwheel Quilt! This variation is made with pinwheel blocks of three different sizes, getting smaller closer to the middle scaling back up to a middle-sized block in the center. The teal and purple theme carries over from the colorful quilt blocks to the solid teal border. The quilt is backed with our Turquoise Blue Paisley quilt backing with soft, stable Hobbs Heirloom batting on the inside. I quilted it in “Fancy 3” with lime green thread. It’s a beautiful quilt, Patti! 🙂

Theresa Rischer made this cute throw featuring colorful Butterfly and Dresden Plate flower blocks! They are sashed and surrounded by a whimsical black and multicolored print with a cornflower blue border accent. I quilted it in “Flights of Fancy” for her using lime green thread. Way to go Theresa, it is precious! 🙂

Melanie’s Diamonds & Flowers Quilt!

Melanie Garcia pieced this catchy quilt featuring diamond blocks of different colored floral prints and black bordered with a white tone on tone print. The 4 x 4 pattern is neatly framed with a black border that make the colors absolutely pop! Hobbs Heirloom batting and Quilters Blenders Dark Gray on Black backing from our shop were used to finish the quilt. I quilted it in Posies for her and did the binding. This is certainly a pretty quilt, Melanie! 🙂

The bright colors she chose contrast nicely with the light blue print used for the sashing. Our soft & stable Hobbs Heirloom batting was used inside the quilt, and I stipple quilted it in purple thread for her. This is a wonderful throw, Jennifer! 🙂
