Monday Progress

This was my inspiration.  I knew I didn’t want to do the squares between the pinwheels but more pinwheels.



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.
