Pin wheel


Happy VTT! Suzanne at Colorado Lady hosts this wonderful get together every Thursday. Participants show off there Vintage things. I have been showing off the two loves of my life (well besides my husband and kids) antiques and quilts. Most particularly the quilts made by my great grandmother. This pinwheel quilt is in the possession of my sister. I love the retro fabrics. I recently purchased some new 'retro fabrics' to produce something of my own.
Unlike my great grandmother mine will not be hand pieced and stitched together. These days I like to see the end of project soon after I start it, call me impatient.

  1. This is so pretty, I just love all the fabrics. Do you have the original pattern for the quilt? How neat would that be. You really have some great quilts....I am still trying to cut the pieces for my first quilt and this quilt class...that is what I should be doing now...but instead I am playing on the blog. HaHa.

    Have a great VTT! I would love to see your quilt in this pattern when you get if finished.

  6. I love the quilts that use a big variety of old fabrics. I think they are much more interesting than quilts that used matched fabric and elaborate designs.

  10. These quilts are each special--I can imagine how much time and dedication it took to piece them together by hand!

  11. What a treasure to have your grandmother's quilts even if your sister holds on to them. The pinwheel is one of my favorite blocks and 1930 repros are sweet.
