Of course I decided to go in color order and this month is green! I ordered an extra set of different dyed fabric. It had 2 other pieces in it that were green. So I went with them and a green on green print from my stash.
I then googled on Pinterest, pinwheel patterns and found a bunch I liked! Because I started the day before the project was due, I was strapped for time and went with one large one. Here is the blog I went with: http://www.sewmamasew.com/2011/06/summer-sewing-pinwheels-in-the-park-pattern-tutorial/
I decided to do a one inch border around the pinwheel block of the Green fabric. Then a 3 inch border of the patterned fabric.
To bind it, I used the hand dyed green again. And did the most challenging part of hand sewing the binding down.
For the backing I used the green on green fabric.
I Freemotion quilted it by trying to make the curves of the pinwheel match the lines in the quilt. In the first border I did miniature swirls. I hurried threw them so they are not as pretty as I would like. In the outer boarder I just did a small simple wave. I thought about doing a second wave, but I liked the simplicity of this.
So after taking every second of time I had as a break on my night shift, I was able to hand sew the binding on!! To excited that I could finish!!
This mini quilt is so simple, but I actually like it. I really am enjoying the creativity and ease of these challenges!
