Scrappy Saturday

I decided today that it was time to finish a rainbow scrappy project from last year. It doesn't have all the rainbow colours in it, since I wasn't really consistent on working on this each month. And then, I only had eight blocks, which wasn't enough to do anything with. I figured if I laid it out 3 blocks wide, by 3 blocks high, it would be a good quilt to donate to the Children's Aid Society, that our guild supports, but for the life of me, I couldn't figure out what to do as a centre block. When I posted this several weeks ago, someone suggested that I put a big pinwheel in the centre. What a perfect idea. so that's what I did. During my figuring for it, doing a 12 inch pinwheel for the centre required four blocks. Well, the four it needed translated into my mind into four sets of six inch finished pinwheels blocks. I was halfway through sewing them all when I had one of those hit the side of the head "duh" moments. I only need four triangles, not sixteen!! So, now I have 3 twelve inch pinwheel blocks left over that are going to be pieced into the back. However, after all that, this classifies as a finished top, measuring 42x42. I'm linking up to Scrappy Saturday. Then maybe I'll do the backing.


  1. We all have those "duh" moments. Glad you can make use of the extra blocks.

  2. scrappy brilliance! LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  3. I am forever having "duh" moments. That's why I am still trying to finish a 97x97 Christmas quilt. ;)
    This is really nice!!

  4. So colorful! You should post it at Michelle's Romantic Tangle post for Let's Make Baby Quilt. It's sure to be loved by a little one. Bless you for your giving nature.

  5. I am loving all of those pinwheels! Your quilt will make some little one happy :)

  6. What a great way to use your blocks... I'm working on putting mine from RSC13 together too and can relate!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
