Symphony of colour – WIP Wednesday

My work in progress Wednesday is just full of colour.  I have started a new quilt this week – another classic pattern with bright colours.

The pattern is called a double pinwheel and the components of the block are really simple.  McCalls has a great link to making the block the traditional way – though I only used one half of their pattern.  The link to their site can be found here.  I once again raided my scrap box to start this project, as well as cutting into my stash a little – I was woefully short on purple scraps in particular!    Because of the high contrast in the colours seams are everything and I must admit they are not as aligned as I would like with this block.  Practice makes perfect, so onto the next block!

I have also finished the top for my pink and gold quilt.  My niece quickly claimed this quilt as her own so there is a impetuous to finish it.  We are now at the fun stage of pulling paper off the back.  I do find this part of the process therapeutic but very very messy,

And last but not least, I have just finished basting the grey and green quilt I started a couple of weeks ago.

Now I just have to quilt it!

  1. The colors in your quilts are wonderful! Really brightens any day. I will be back to see more!

    I have made the block like the McCalls pattern a few times before. I like your design option for this block.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment which brought me to your blog to enjoy your quilts … 🙂 Pat

  2. You are a quilting machine – I am loving your new project. I’m still struggling to get seams to match up, and I’m using way less 🙂 Love the pink and gold quilt – smart niece 🙂

  3. I love color, so I love your quilts!! The double pinwheel is a neat block. I like the “layers” of it. Pink and gold is one of my favorite color combos ; I think removing paper from paper pieced blocks is my least favorite job. Your gray and green quilt is stunning I am looking forward to seeing how you decide to quilt it.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! You have some lovely things in progress, too! I love the green and grey. I have a piece of vintage fabric with those colors, but I never thought about using the scheme for a whole quilt! Thanks for the inspiration!
