Double Pinwheel Quilt

These blocks have sitting on my blocks for entirely too long and I finally got some time this week to put them together.  They are the February do. Good Stitches blocks from the Wish Circle.  I requested double pinwheel blocks using this tutorial in pinks, yellows, oranges, and purples.
February do. Good Stitches
I experimented with quilting clamshells all over on the quilt which went much better than I expected considering that I haven't done any free motion quilting in ages.

I also machine stitched the binding down.  I don't love doing it, but I have decided that for quilts that are donated, it is more durable.  This was my best attempt so far so practicing must be making a difference!

This quilt will be donated to Project Linus.  

School starts next week and it will just be this guy with me at home:

I feel a little bad about how excited I am, except the kids seem even more excited. 


  1. Your machine binding looks great. I need lots more practice at that! I haven't had the nerve to try the clamshell but like yours a lot.

  2. I love that T-Shirt! :)
    The quilt is so pretty!

  3. Love that color combo, what a pretty quilt! Also that tshirt is Awesome!

  4. It's a good thing that little one is at your house and not mine. I wouldn't get a thing done as I'd be mermerized by how adorable he is. Your daughter is beautiful. Quilt is might fine, too.

  5. I love the luscious colors you used for this quilt. Sweet!

  6. Such a beautifully summery quilt. I love the colour combinations and the quilting works beautifully.

  7. I love the quilt! I'm very impressed with how straight your machine-stitched binding is. I need to practice that.... I only did it once and it was all over the place!

  8. I am very happy that I got to this post.
