Block number six is called Paper Pinwheels. It is a simple block to make, just squares and half square triangles. I chose batik fabrics, my favorite fabric to use. Here is a sample block:
Okay, now for my favorite part and why I am creating all 200 quilt blocks from the book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". When you put four blocks together... SURPRISE you get another pattern. I have to admit I didn't see it coming. I didn't know you would get a repeat of the center pattern. Here it is.
Notice that the pink fabric now gives you the same design as the light blue fabric. That's what makes quilting so exciting. So I made a "Lovie Lap Quilt" out of this pattern. Lovie Lap Quilts are quilts I designed after visits with my grandmother in the nursing home. They have two pockets, one to keep your hands warm and the other for items close at hand. I have them for sale on my site. Click here to see more Lovie Lap Quilts.

I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
