This is my latest all-scrap project. It is just a wee quilt -- 18 by 24 inches. For now I put it on the wall, but my daughter is already eyeing it for a doll quilt.
I quilted it with yellow thread following the zig-zag of the pinwheels.
There are a few little I-Spy type surprises in the quilt. I always have lots of novelty fabric scraps to use up.
If you are wondering about my method, I used the little ruler above. It is called the L'il Twister I believe. It is by CS Designs. I ignored the directions that came with it and used scrappy 4 patches to cut from instead. I made four patches using 3 inch squares as above. The finished 4 patch was 5 inches. Then, once cut with the ruler, the new little pinwheel square is 3.5 inches.
I think a larger quilt like this would look wonderful and scrappy, but it would be a LOT of work. Happy Quilting!
