    This one is a double pinwheel, using a stacked fabric for half of the pinwheel blades and set with a single Irish Chain block. Some questions have come up about design....a hard topic. I decided to put these two blocks together for this quilt but I'm sure that somewhere, sometime in the history of quilting, someone else has used these two blocks together. So, is it my design....I have no idea. Do I mind if someone else decides to use a double pinwheel and a single irish chain....no!! Do I think they're copying my work when they do that....no!

    Also, a couple of people have asked that I not post pictures individually because it makes it hard for them on their unread topics list. The reason I don't post three at a time is because I really enjoy seeing how many people look at a particular quilt top. I was going to stop posting except for one a day, but I really am having fun putting my pictures on and a lot of people seem to be getting ideas for settings. If that's horribly wrong, let me know :)

    Thanks so much! I have really been tickled at the idea of so many people taking the time to look at my little quilt tops :)

    Well it certainly doesn't bother me. :-D Everything you've posted so far is worthy of looking at and Recent Topics kind of regulates itself - as long as ppl are replying, that means there is interest in that thread - when ppl stop replying, your thread will move off Recent Topics. :-D

    BTW this one is gorgeous as well and I've added it along with all the other stacked ones here http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual_section_list.jsp

    to the kaleidoscope Topic List - didn't know if you knew about it. ;)

    Thanks for the info...I don't want to annoy anyone, but I do like the single posts so I can see how many people were drawn to a certain quilt top.
    Thanks for the postings on the Kaleidoscope Topic list, which I didn't know about :)

    I love every one of your quilts, and don't want to miss a one! I'm simply amazed at the sheer number of them! One at a time is fine as far as I'm concerned.

    Very beautiful. I love your color and fabric print choices. Sets the whole quilt off in a unique way. :thumbup:

    What tool do you use to cut the pinwheels.? I am wowed by the whole stack and whack but still can't wrap my head or rather cutter around them. Do you do any 4 patch posies?
    Maybe I should just jump in and start whacking on a piece of fabric.

    You would have a stack of four squares and then cut them on the diagonal. You could use any double pinwheel pattern. Yes, I think this one would be a good one to start on, if you mean for using stacked fabric. It would be good because your stacked fabric really doesn't come together anywhere in the block. However, it's not as dramatic as the stacks where the fabric meets itself.

    I just use my regular rulers for stacked blocks and use the 45 or 60 degree mark on them. I really recommend Bethany Reynold's first book, "Magic Stack n Whack." I'm not sure what a 4 patch posie is, but if it's four squares put together, yes, I have done those. If it's four triangles put together, also, yes. I really like the look of the four triangles put together and they're really easy to do.

    I'm loving this! I like that you post them one at a time. It makes it easy for me to go back in and find one that I want to see again. You are very inspiring. Keep 'em coming (one at a time)! :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Thanks! That was the other reason I didn't like to post them together. If someone was going to use an idea for setting or whatever, it seems like it would be easier to find the quilt top on my list if they could just look for the name. Then again, maybe no one will use anything - who knows :)

    Thanks! I'm retired and this is pretty much what I do - piecing. When you look at the numbers of quilt tops, you have to remember that I'm not quilting any of them, so there's a big difference :)
