When I first laid eyes on Petal Pinwheels I immediately fell in love. It is such a bright and whimsical line and it reminds me of springtime and blossoming gardens. Imagine my excitement when it was announced as the fabric line for the 2014 MQG fabric challenge! I was over the moon!!! Then came the tough part. What to do with it?
Seeing as how I love the fabric so much, the easy part was deciding to make something for me. Check. On my “to make” list is a deck quilt for myself. And I had the perfect quilt in mind! While visiting the quilt show in Regina, Sk earlier this month, I had purchased a quick curve ruler and the Metro Rings quilt pattern. Bingo! A match made in fabric heaven!!
Eventually I got to the layout stage. I think I’ve sent Jaclyn 17 different photos of different layouts, asking for her opinion. She’s really good at humouring me! You see, I have decided not to completely stick to the pattern with this one. I have a vision for this quilt that I’ll save for the final reveal.
So for now, I’ll continue to trim these blocks…
What are you working on this week?
