It was love at first sight! Browsing Flickr for quilting ideas I happened upon this quilt by Karen Moore. That was in September 2010. A fat quarter bundle of the same fabric, Ginger Blossom by Sandi Henderson, was quickly sourced on Etsy (the one and only fat quarter bundle I have ever bought).
When the fabrics arrived they weren't quite as bright as they appeared on Flickr but they were still gorgeous. Miss O in particular liked the fabrics. I set to work making all the HSTs and sewed over half into pinwheels. And that's as far as I went. The pinwheels and remaining HSTs were neatly stacked away in a cake container and placed in the top of the cupboard. As this was before I began blogging, I have no record of exact times and details.
After completing Peaceful Night last week I immediately started thinking about my next project. Now seemed to be the perfect time to work on this WIP while I waited on creative inspiration for a new project. This was the first piecing I had done on my new machine and what a pleasure it has proved to be. Working a little here and there, all the pinwheels were complete, pressed and trimmed.
Thankfully Miss O still really likes this quilt and worked on the layout for the pinwheels which I have sewn together. The borders are yet to be cut, pieced and added but we both really like the pinwheel centre panel. I'm looking forward to seeing this one complete and in use on Miss O's bed .
