I made this plus quilt from Marti Michell charm squares. I saw this pattern on Pinterest and just knew I had to make a plus quilt. I don't plan on putting a border on this one. I like it just like it is so it is also ready for quilting....
Here are the pinwheel blocks I did wrong. I put 4 little pinwheels together to make the blocks but that was not what we were supposed to be doing. I made 12 of these and I now have more fabric since I had to buy more to make the correct blocks...so I will be doing more of these to make a nice little pinwheel quilt for myself.
Here are the blocks like they are supposed to be. These are 12 inch pinwheels. There are 10 blocks in all but these are the colors I used. The group chose to do 30's fabrics for these quilts and I didn't have a lot of 30's fabrics so I had to go buy more when I messed up....I will show you the quilts that our group made once they are finished...
I did finish another quilt top but didn't take a picture of it yet. I will get one and post it soon..
Now, to show you some of the projects that my friends worked on this weekend. Lots of eye candy and we all had a lot of fun....
This picture does not do justice to this pinwheel quilt. It is really beautiful and I want to make one.
A disappearing 9 patch from polka dot scraps.
My friend Jackie working on her Grand Illusion quilt...
Here's Bevs half square triangle scrap quilt...
I think this one is called Fabric Fusion and it was in a magazine a few years ago. It's also on my list of quilts to make with scraps.
Here's Deanna's Halloween quilt.
Karen was working on her Trip Around the World quilt.
This was on the wall in the workroom and I have a panel to make out of it. I've had the panel for a few years and haven't done anything with it but this is what I plan on doing too.
Sue's embroidery quilt.
Diane's pinwheel quilt
Sharon's Trash to Treasure Pineapple blocks
Not sure what this one's called but it's a form of pinwheels too.
Sue put this together with just fabric. It's quilter's on the fabric. So cute, got to find me some.
Here's a close-up of the fabric.
There was a lot more done but I didn't get pics of everything. We had a great time and I plan on doing another retreat in November....I hope you enjoyed seeing these great projects.
