This is a cute one…………….

A client’s quilt destined for a granddaughter. A “pinwheel” of sort with a seersucker fabric for the backing. It is a very light weight wrap. The size is 63”x 68”. The batting used is 100% cotton called “Sew Perfect” by Fairfield for Hancock Fabrics & Crafts. It turned out to be a very fragile batting…..quite thin and wispy. I quilted it using a copper colored thread by Rheingold, a 40 wt poly, and Superior’s So Fine, 50 wt poly, in the bobbin (in white). The photos tell the story……………………………

Such a simple stitching pattern but one that gives the needed movement, feel and texture to a sweet piecing.

Now, I’m off to see what other quilty mischief I can engage in! Stay tuned……………………………………………..

    I love the pattern you gave it! It may be simple but it is lovely and impressive. Love, love, love!!!

    It turned out really fabulous. Nicely done.

  3. Goodness girl, you’re always getting into mischief, aren’t you? But the good sort. Another quilt that makes me (visually) happy in this long and dreary winter.

  4. Wonderful circles. Is that just practice, or do you mark any type of pattern to follow?

    • treadlemusic says:

      No marking….it’s really quite a flexible pattern to stitch, as the circles can vary in size/position depending on the area to be filled. Extra “echo” stitches are added if I need to make the next swirl circle in another area. This type of stitching is quite relaxing after I get into the “rhythm” of the pattern. Thanks for your wonderful comments and questions!! Hugs…………

    i like the circles they do give the pinwheels movement. It would be a fun design to do.
