Finally got some sewing done

I’ve accomplished a lot of things in the last few weeks, but sewing?  Not so much.  I think the Pinwheel Sampler Quilt-Along is in week 4.  I, however, am back in week 2.  I’m kind of dreading week 3 because my machine doesn’t like the quarter-inch seam (I know, essential to quilting, right?) which makes it harder to do half-square triangles, and there are a LOT of HSTs in the sampler.  That said, I’m happy how these turned out.

And now that I see the color combinations in the pictures, I think I’ll go with more yellow/gold and orange/pink instead of the darker pink/maroons.  My LQS has more of Anna Maria Horner’s Filigree in Sun so I’ll pick that up.  I’m also going to add MakeLife by Sweetwater in Sun – they’re kind of orange-y dots.

Tonight I’m going to a quilt show put on by the West Suburban Quilt Guild at Mount Mary College.  It will be my first and I’m really looking forward to it.

    love these blocks! this quilt a long is so fab!

    i’ve been thinking about joining in and then changed my mind about it like 5 times. i’d love to do it, but then i couldn’t decide on the fabrics to use and i already have so many other projects that need finishing… but i’m completely energy-less at the moment:(

    • Thanks Suzy! I like doing the quilt-along, but I hear you about too many other projects. I do love pinwheels though, and her inspiration quilt is so beautiful. I wish I could sew a better 1/4 in seam!!
