WIP Wednesday - Pinwheels

This little pile of trimmings...
came from making four of these. Trimming HSTs isn't much fun, but it sure makes a difference to the finished block.
Pinwheels have always been one of my favourite blocks. I love all the many variations too, but I haven't made many of those. I recently discovered the disappearing pinwheel block, so I may have to give that a try sometime soon.

These stacks of units are also destined to become pinwheels and join the first four in a simple little project.
I have a series in mind to start here on the blog, so I don't want to share many details. I will, however, be needing pattern testers. If you're interested leave me a comment or email me at piecefullydevoted at gmail dot com.

I'm also working on writing the pattern for Spring Dreams, which works well as either a mini quilt or as  garden flag. If you are interested in testing Spring Dreams, just let me know.
If you haven't yet entered my giveaway for a free Craftsy class, go here to do so. Craftsy has so many great classes, and they keep adding more. Most of my free motion skills have come from watching their classes. If you've already entered the giveaway, good luck!

I link to these places.


  1. I don't mind trimming HSTs... Love your pattern! Wish the weather would agree to be more spring-like!

  2. Just like you... I love those pinwheels! Your Spring Dreams garden flag looks great against that white background. Hope we soon get some real spring!

  3. I love the idea of a mini quilt in the garden! Looks great against the snow! Spring is on the way!

  4. Pin wheels make wonderfully attractive quilts. I love your banner for the garden!

  5. Pinwheels are so underrated! I just had to make a bunch for my gypsy wife quilt and they do have a certain easy charm to them :)

  6. I love the garden flag!! The poor thing needs green grass and wild flowers around it though! Hope it sees some soon :)

  7. I'm a total pinwheel fan!! :) I agree - trimming is key!

  8. I love to look at pinwheels, but have roughly zero desire to make them. I know that's weird, but totally true. :)

  9. Pinwheel quilt blocks always say Spring to me!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
