    Scrappy Pinwheels Mini Lap Quilt

    Well, it's been awhile since I have made anything - busy with job interviews . Wanted to do something with all of those left over triangles I created when I made a bunch of flying geese for my patriotic stars and stripes three tours quilt. For this reason the pinwheels are not made to specification but from my stash. I also wanted to try my hand at appliqué as I have a more advanced project to work on. Didn't have any interfacing so instead used a bit of glue and white cotton fabric to back the yellow fabric before machine stitching it onto quilt top. ( used zigzag stitch and changed the stitch length).

    I hope the job interviews have yielded a job, or soon will.

    Great quilt - I think the yellow star 'makes' the quilt!

    How pretty. Red, white and blue is always a sure winner, isn't it?

    Very nice, I have a ziplock bag with triangles and another with 1" x 4" strips, thanks for an idea to mull over.
