Well we had snow this week here in New Hampshire. It didn't last too long but it will be back. I love this time of year because I can really get excited about my quilting. When it's cold, I quilt!
I love the black batik fabric I chose for this block. The contrast of the purple and green really make the pattern pop. Here is what it looks like when you put four blocks together.
Do you notice the small green pinwheel and the larger black pinwheels? Then there are the different squares the pattern makes as well. This is definitely one of my favorite quilt blocks. I made this quilt into a Lovie Lap Quilt.
I bet you could add a fourth color to this pattern. Keep the green pinwheels in the center all the same fabric but then change the outer green pieces to another fabric. Let me know if you give it a try. I would love to hear from you.
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.
