Design Wall Monday–Pinwheels


This week on design wall Monday I am starting a new project with pinwheels.  We are at the beginnings of a snowy/icy day so staying home is what I will be doing.  Run on over to Judy at Patchwork Times and see what everyone is doing.

The start of the day— this photo taken just a few minutes ago – the weather forecast has changed somewhat from yesterday – now they are saying more ice than snow darn it! I wanted snow not ice.  At least the temperature is supposed to be over freezing by 4 PM or so – it won’t stick around long back to the 50’s tomorrow.


Fabric is pressed, I got that done yesterday afternoon,


The pattern and the instructions are ready for me to start pouring over before I get started cutting later this morning.  First I need to clean the sewing machine and get a new needle in – I haven’t done that in awhile – I tend to forget Sad smile


What are you all working on?  I will work on some of my other projects as well today I’m sure, but this one I will getting started on – no rush.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Sounds like a good day to stay indoors and sew. I really like the pinwheel pattern!

    I really like pinwheels! And the quilt you’ve chosen intrigues me. In fact, I’m using 3 1/4 inch pinwheel blocks for the junctions of sashing in a baby quilt. I hope to have the flimsy finished to show by the end of the week.

    Woke up to snow here in Wichita this AM. The main streets seem to be clear though.

    Nice pinwheels! Definitely will keep you occupied in a warm house. They are saying we might get showers but what we need here are downpours (SoCalif)!

    That’s a cute pattern.

    My driveway has patches of ice. I hope it melts this afternoon.

    Pinwheels are always of great effect. The pattern is wonderful and your fabrics look very nice. Can’t wait to see more of it.
