Pinwheel & October Finishes


Finally finished Pinwheel, the secondary project that was made after my class with Pat Speth!  This quilt is made with bonus units from the Labor Day Madness pattern.

Remember I mentioned that I didn't really want 2 quilts from the exact same fabric line?  Well, I talked my friend Debbie into doing these quilts with me and we swapped bonus units...and I totally lucked out because I LOVE the fabrics she chose!!!!
 Fun and easy quilting with the perfect shade of purple thread!
And best of all, I was able to use up the leftover hunks of fabric on the backing...hardly anything leftover...just a few scraps for the scrap bins!
