Hello watchers, readers & bloggers, I am sharing with you today a finish of one of my quilts, with a bit of help from some friends.
Last year Eight friends decided to participate in a Pinwheel block swap, there were eight of us, so each month for the next .......I forget how many months it was something like 10mths we each made eight pinwheel blocks, many of us made them the super quick way........................
I started to put my blocks together at our retreat then I said to a few of the girls I wanted to add a applique header with either & house or an angel, I got some votes for a house, some for an angel, so I thought why can't I do both?
I haven't used all the pinwheel blocks, I thought I might make a cushion, or two, plus I used some in the pieced backing.
Block swaps are lots of fun, I have participated in a few now, if you missed them see here , here & here.
I didn't do any fancy quilting just straight lines & some stipple.
Because I had a lovely quilt hanger in my lounge, I added a hanging sleeve so now the quilt is up to enjoy!

Thank you girls! Also to Megan, Rachel, Aurely for making some extra's!
Do you like my tiny pinwheels???
Somehow I had got carried away & made extra blocks, I can't brag I made blocks this small, I just cut them down to 2" square!
Heavy rain here today, both my cats are very happy to be inside!
