Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along





OK. So thanks to Marcie (that is blame chica) I have decided to join a quilt-along. The quilt project that Rachel at P.S. I Quilt is teaching is just too dang cute to pass up. If you would like to join the quilting fun (AMY) or just take a look at all of her cute quilts, click on the button on the side of my blog (not the pictures because I did not know how to get that to work--sorry).





One of my goals this year is to use up some of my extra fabric and scrap fabric before I buy a ton more. So I decided instead of buying the layer cake I really wanted (yet) I would try it out using some random fabrics I had left over from other projects. I tried to mix and match and find some that went together. I am not sure if I succeeded or just made fabric vomit--so let me know if you have an opinion on the fabrics I chose. (I might be kicking the dark brown one to the curb--not sure yet). Also let me know what you think for the background color--white or creamish???? Or something else??







Now that I am committed and have spent some time cutting my 10 inch squares, I am ready to get started. I will let you know in 12 weeks what the finished (or at least 1/2 way finished) project looks like.

Let's clarify: I (Marcie) am NOT teaching this quilt along, only participating in it. :) Amy-join in. Jess-the fabrics look great together!!!! I vote white.

I like the colors. I think cream would be a good base. But I am not a quilter I just love colors. I don't know how you dont go nuts looking at the sewing machine. I made some flags and I was about to throw the bobbin winder thing threw the wall.
