Pinwheels are coming along…

Last weekend I posted about making Pinwheel blocks….you can find the post HERE.

This weekend, I continued making blocks and have decided to turn them into a Twin-Size quilt that will be donated to one of the women’s shelters that our guild is supporting.

After I got the blocks made, I started thinking about a layout. My first thought was that I wanted them on point and alternating…..

As I looked at this, I kept seeing the streak-of-lightning that emerged between the rows of blocks and thought about putting different colors of fabric between the blocks…..

Ignore the two white squares….that was when I was trying something else.

……but I felt that adding a lot more color would decrease the excitement of the pinwheels.

Then I started thinking about keeping the background white and adding stems under each “flower”.

I like that idea but am having a heck of a time figuring out how to piece it without lots of inset seams!! My initial thought was to piece them into rectangle sections and then piece those sections together……

I will have some partial seams but no insets. So I will cogitate on that for the week and see if I can figure out an easy way to do it!!!

On the work side of my life, I have found something that is helping me during this super busy time. I calculated the number of tax returns that I need to do each week in order to be finished by April 15th. and, IF I finish all of them, then I don’t have to work on the weekend!! It is truly motivating me to stay in my office during the week!!!
