Block number eleven is called Electric Fan. To me they look like pinwheels. There are different options you can choose when making a quilt with this block. You can use different colors for each pinwheel and keep your second and third colors the same or you could change the positions of the medium and dark fabrics. I chose to change the positions of the medium and the dark fabrics and use the same colors throughout. Take a look:
I had played around with the colors but forgot to take pictures. It was a challenge for me to use only three colors. I always feel like it won't be enough. However, I do love the simplicity of the quilt. Here is what the actual block looks like:
When you first look at the pattern you don't realize you will be making pinwheels with the red print as well as the yellow. That is one of the reasons I am making 200 quilts from the 200 blocks from my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". It will allow quilters to see what the blocks can look like when put together. Now on to block number 12.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three 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.
