1930's Quilt

On my family quilt retreat I started a 1930's pinwheel quilt. My Aunt has a large collection of 30's fabrics so I was able to make a quilt that has more than 80 different fabrics! Along with all the other fun goings on on the retreat I worked on getting my blocks cut out. The fabrics are just so colorful and fun!

This quilt as simple as the design is, is very time consuming. Picking the fabrics, cutting all the squares, then pairing them up with a white squares.

Then all the half square triangle blocks are made pressed and then trimmed. I figure I have over 20 hours into this one and I still have not sewn a pin wheel! I must say that all the steps let you touch and play with each square, I so enjoy seeing each different fabric. Not sure I would enjoy as much  if they all looked the same. ^_^
Today I hope to get some of the pin wheels sewn.

Oh and for those of you wondering I am getting the binding sewn on my nine patch. Hand sewing around a 92 x 109 inch quilt is taking a little bit of time. I hope to get it done this week in my evening TV watching.
