Its Started!

The pinwheel sampler quilt along has started, Rachel of p.s, i quilt posted the first block tutorial on Saturday. So it was time to choose which fabric to use.
Which one?
Well having changed my mind everytime i looked at the fabric,
 i finally went for this group.

I decided that i didn't want to be totally scrappy - which is what would have happened with the Layer Cake and there was another reason i have fallen in love with this (scroll down the page to post headed Sooo..) and this, so am in the process of coming up with something along these lines that will work well with the fabric i have.

So how did the blocks come out?

I love them,
 i think am unlikely to use the greens in the original group of fabrics
 and may only use the reds and oranges with the cream/beige coloured prints
 but haven't completely decided yet.

And one final thing as a result of making these blocks i have fallen in love.
But i will tell you about that tomorrow.
Happy stitching

Very Nice work! I love the design and colors...and I love love love the Featherweight! I love to see these old machines in use don't you? My hubby repairs sewing machines for me too, we have several tredles, and he can use them better than I can!!! What would we do without them?~
