Happy Thursday!

Well, the sun is shining and I'm having a great day.  Hope you are too!

It's hard to believe that it is week 8 of the Hex-a-thon.  Where does the time go?  Once again I did a little fussy cutting.  I love the hexagon blue fabric around the dinosaur.

If you remember a while back I showed you a jelly roll and background fabric of brushed cotton.  It was calling to me and I just had to take it home.  This is what it became.  A double pinwheel baby quilt.

Of course I used the Easy Angle Ruler for this one.  I sewed a feature strip and a background strip together then used the Ruler to cut 8 units with the strips right side up, and then 8 units with the strips wrong sides up.

Pair up the Easy Angle units up as shown above and then sew your two squares together.  I cut 2 1/2" squares from a feature strip for cornerstones and cut 2 1/2 x 8 1/2" background fabric pieces for the sashing.  A 2 1/2" border of background fabric all around, and it's done.

I think this pattern would be great done with a Bali Pop.  Oh if only there were more hours in a day.


  1. I have those same blocks started but in different fabrics in one of my UFO bins. Since I have declared this the year of the UFO it will likely get done when I run across it again!

    Now I've seen your finished quilt I want to dig mine out, but alas, I must finish things in the order I find them. :)

  2. I was wondering when we might see that quilt. Looks good Linda.

  3. I like the way the double pinwheels come together.
    The quilt looks great.

  4. Looks great Linda - love the double pinwheels. Lucky baby!
