Hi There!

Here are my first 4 blocks of the Pinwheel Party quilt along. It took me a while to figure out what fabrics I was going to use, but yesterday at the quilt store i saw the new Kansas Troubles line of Butterfly Garden and decided that is what I was going to use. I had 3 1/2 yards of the gold background fabric that I bought a few years ago to use as a backing but didn't like how it looked with that quilt, so i put it in the trunk for a rainy day ... today it is raining and i'm using the gold background fabric. Of course i had to purchase some the Butterfly Garden fabric, but that's ok, cuz i love it!

And for those asking, below is the picture of the quilt i did with the Cotton Blossom Jelly Roll. If you look at the right side of the picture, the rows are at an angle and I would have had to cut too much off to make it square, so that is why i was frustrated and tore it apart. This is the fabric in my previous post that I used for my March Schnibble pattern called RoundAbout.
I can't believe tomorrow is Monday already, and since today is only 1/2 over, i'm going to relax on the couch and watch some movies since the Nascar Race is rain delayed.

Have a great week everyone!
