Another Pinwheel and Stitching Progress

Hi Everyone!

I hope this finds you all well and enjoying whatever you are working on! I just finished another pinwheel for my BOM "Pinwheels in My Garden" by Kansas Troubles
I am just using two colors for contrast in each pinwheel - last month burgundy, this month navy. I really want the stars to steal the show when the quilt is finished.

I've done a bit of stitching on my Wool Crazy block - but not much! I've decided to do this 24" block with the theme of spring - I'm aiming to have it done for 2011 :) Here is my center block - still in need of more embellishments.

Last but not least, I was given a gift certificate to a near by quilt shop back in September but was waiting for just the right thing to purchase. As you all know, I've gone head-over-heels with the Australian stichery/quilting combo so here is what I found by Lynette Anderson - Spring and then Summer:

There is actually four patterns - one for each season - and it can be made into a quilt as seen below:

Do visit Lynnette's blog and take in all that she has to offer.

Take care and happy sewing!


  1. I have seen other bloggers working on BOM pinwheels. I didn't realize it is a Kansas Troubles project.
    I want to do the wool project and have the book but have not started. At least you have a plan and a start.

  2. Could you please share with me the shop from where you purchased Lynette's pattern? I have looked online and cannot find a place here in the states! Thanks, and happy stitching!

  3. I love what you have done with your blog! It looks fantastic! Your pinwheel block has a nice contrast and the wool crazy block is wonderfully rustic. Lynette's designs are very popular here in Australia - I'm delighted that you have found them. Cheers, Ann :-)

  4. I love your pinwheel block and the crazy block...great job!

  5. You are working on such really fun stuff! Love the wool, of course, and the block and stitcheries!
