Pinwheel Quilt


Ok…I’m back. New goal- 1 post/week. My problem is remembering to photograph my work! I’ve got finished projects for the next few months if I can keep up the 1/week rule, so wish me luck!

This quilt was done as a Christmas gift (2 1/2 moths ago!) for my Granny. The tutorial comes from my favorite website, Moda Bakeshop ( Moda Bakeshop is full of great tutorials, made by people who use Moda brand fabric. It is also where I find most of my favorite patterns! This one is called Eli’s Wheel and the tutorial can be found here:

It uses a pre-cut “jelly roll” (one of my favorite cutting shortcuts). Jelly rolls consist of 40 pre-cut strip of fabric 2 1/2″ x 44″ that can be combined in a variety of ways. If you’re new to quilting or have limited cut space or bad wrists, jelly rolls are a great option because they drastically reduce the amount of cutting you have to do and they are very accurate (both important for quilting).

Here are just a few examples of the variety you can get with jelly rolls (2 by me – 1 on the to do list)


Here are some better views of the pinwheel quilt. For my next quilt I want to attempt either free motion quilting (VERY hard/ scary) or hand quilting (time consuming!).
