I decided that simpler was better when it came to this baby quilt for my sister – Joy is expecting a baby girl in early June, and Auntie Bonnie has been stalling!
I knew I wanted to use either the pink Bonus Triangles left from my recent Sister’s Choice finish, or the purple Bonus Triangles from the border of Lazy Sunday ---but couldn't decide on which until I started playing last night. Why not use both?
This is a simple pinwheel star made completely from half-square triangles and corner squares.
There are a LOT of points to match, and some do and some don’t. It’s for a baby. It will be loved up and used a lot and worn out. I am not going to let that kind of perfection mindset nonsense get to me right now when all I really wanted to do was have a day, an evening, and part of the next day to relax after 2 weeks on the road.
My blocks finish at 6” with each 1/2 square triangle finishing at 1.5”, but you can get an 8” block if your units finish at 2”.
I’ve enjoyed sewing at my 301 at the cabin while watching Doc Martin on Netflix. That man cracks me up!! If you haven’t watched it, you should – it’s quirky and heartwarming and funny all at the same time.
Oops! This one …NOT so funny!
THIS I WILL grab the seam ripper for!
Four blocks on the design wall!
And then there were twenty ---
I need five more, but I’m leaving it until the next time I’m up here – and I’ll bring some sashing fabric with me. It’s going to be cute, mismatched points and all!
I'm not sure of what to do for borders yet ---

I’m packing up what few things I brought into the cabin yesterday – and headed back down the mountain. Catch you from home ---
