Then I remembered I hadn't posted this one... had to wait until I gave it to Cutzi, for this little guy - here. Isn't he cute? And the HAIR! Adorable.
Sometimes when I'm planning a quilt I drive myself crazy trying to make everything even. Balanced. Perfect? Well, not perfect, but too perfectionist (about the wrong things). Anyway, enough self-analysis.
This time, I challenged myself to make a quilt all from scraps, and I did it! I even pieced the batting, for heaven's sake.
I've wanted to make a pinwheel quilt, but - though I've practiced - I still can't get all eight points to align together in the middle. (There's that patience thing again...) But I've seen this variation floating around the blogosphere, going by different names.
The one I like is Whirlygiggle. That suits it, don't you think? Well, I do anyway.
The only large piece of fabric - ie "non scrap" - I used was this batik for the backing. I can never get the colors right on the computer, and even if I thought I did, your computer may display them differently. At any rate, I'll just say that the pink/fuschia on the back doesn't 'read' as vividly in real life. Not quite so much contrast - it's all very much in the cool spectrum.
Not too impressive as far as difficulty, but a good scrap challenge for me :D
