I'm finally ready to show this month's Schnibble! This pattern really reminded me of the pinwheels we had as children.
For fabric, I went through my patriotic pieces and found the brighter ones that I never use in any other projects. I also wanted as many stripes and lines I could to help show movement. The problem I had was in background fabric. Some of my pieces were "light" so I didn't want to use a light background.
Since I was trying to emulate toy pinwheels, I decided to use a sky-blue background fabric. This one has patriotic words printed on it, as well.
Just a reminder, the Vintage Schnibble group is making this pattern by Carrie Nelson
There are already so many fun versions popping up in blogland! Of course, I think I say that every month. I also see versions that make me want to make the pattern again! I think that is why I love this group. The hostesses are Sherri and Sinta. You can visit their blogs on July first to see the parades.
Here is my finished quilt. I took some pictures in my yard with some yard stake pinwheels, but then I took it over on Fort Eustis by the James river and got the fence photo.
Have a great day!
