    With great encouragement from Izy and Katrine I thought I would play around with some fabrics in my stash!! Hey presto!! I think I got the idea and just kept going!!!!!! I am REALLY hooked on this now!!!! Thanks Izy and Katrine!!!!! I had lots of 2 1/2" squares already cut then cut backing squares 3 1/4" (bit of trial and error!) The lavender sashings are 1 1/2" and the cream is 2 1/2". I intend to bind it in lavender. It went together so quickly!

    ooops! Posted sideways!!

    Oh my! I'm working on a baby quilt with 3-D pinwheels! I got the idea from another quilt that was posted. All I lack is adding the borders. I used the tutorial on this site. Yours are so pretty and I love the sashing! I'll post mine when I get my borders on.

    I really enjoy these, can remember as a kid playing with pinwheels on a stick, as did my children and now their children do too. Thanks for those memories

    No!!! Just wanted to 'have-a-go' when I saw the ones Izy and Katrine had done!! The group I belong to has an exhibition in September (They do it every 2 yrs) so I am hoping to display it then! I do lots of projects and give them away, then when it comes to showing them I have nothing to show!!!!!
