    Finished Quilting the One I Damaged

    This one was a lot of work ( and angst ) but I finished it today and I think my friend will be very happy.
    It is such a bright and cheerful quilt.
    Each "diamond" was boxed and filled with Pebbles . Some are more round than others. LOL
    And it figures I photographed the one block with an un cut thread.

    I do have one comment about these scrap quilts. I love the idea but if other quilters have run into the same problem it's worth mentioning. Please try to use the same weight fabric throughout. When quilting across different weights, the orientation and stretch can catch the quilter by surprise.
    My quilting is all freehand, so when I happened across really "active " fabric I could compensate by changing direction. I don't know whether those with computerized machines ever have that problem.

    I think Patches & Pinwheels is my favorite scrappy pattern! Love yours. I have one waiting to be quilted. Might have to 'borrow' you quilting idea!

    love this quilt. it's on my list of scrappies. love the quilting too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great quilt! I have made 2 of them in this pattern. It is a wonderful way to use scraps. Great quilting, too.

    Very pretty. I love the secondary pattern on this quilt. I don't see a 16 patch with pinwheels ... I see a large square of squares set on point and "spinning".
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The quilt is stunning! i was thinking about an unfortunate family matter when I first looked and didn't really take it in. I looked again and, WOW. Thanks.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
