Pinwheel Art

A few years ago, I made a quilt for Olivia's twin-size bed out of Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane fabric. I saved all the scraps and have made a few accessories out of it over the years - quilts for her baby dolls, toss pillows for her bed. It's been on my mind to make pinwheels for her wall for quite some time. After seeing how quickly they can be made, I don't know why I put it off for so long!

Olivia was able to help with putting the fabric in pairs and choosing buttons for the middles.

I used this tutorial, and made several different sizes - basically whatever my scraps would create.

3M Command Strips worked perfectly to secure the pinwheels to the wall.

Last week, I blogged what I was going to get done by the weekend. This was really helpful getting my projects organizing and keeping me focused, although I fell a little short of my goals. Even so, I'm going to keep posting crafting goals. Nothing like public accountability, right?

1. Plus Sign Quilt - blogged here
2. Pinwheels - done!

1. Mug Rug - need to finish binding
2. Cut out fabric for this quilt
3. Finish binding on Isabelle's baby quilt (my mom sewed the top, I quilted)
4. Organize yarn for next projects

What are your sewing goals for this week?

  1. I love your pinwheels. I bet they are super cute on the wall. What a great idea. I have been super busy trying to get ready for Callee's first birthday. Leaving for Michigan on Thursday....will wave on my way by.
