I lay out the parts knowing I couldn’t assemble the blocks in a traditional way since there’s a bit of interlocking. I was very pleased with my vision but could not help but think that was a lot of background. I sat down and continued sewing HSTs together and glanced at the design wall.
A lightbulb came on and I jumped up and started rearranging. I planned to put all the blue and green pinwheels in the center and the black and teal all around the outside. I started texting pictures to a few friends and my friend I was sewing with commented the lime green pinwheels were a little smooshed together and not very distinct.
A little more shuffling and I placed a black and teal pinwheel in the center. It definitely delineated the pinwheels better in person and photographically. I’ll have to sew a few more of the black pinwheels.
Once I figured this out I did some more cutting so that I had all the pieces I needed for the center of the quilt cut. If I sew at home I can be ready for borders Saturday. Wow! That thought is motivating.
