I spent a good portion of Saturday evening cutting out itty bitty squares for a new quilt I'm working on for my nephew. I have no idea what the real name of this block is. I'm calling it the Sawtooth Pinwheel because it has elements of both of those blocks . . . long-time quilters: feel free to correct me on the name!
I chose some cheery but down to earth colors for this quilt . . . my little nephew's name literally means, "Peaceful Forest".
I'm not gonna lie . . . I'm pretty proud of myself for getting all those squiggles going in the same direction.
(It wasn't. No worries.)
I've been working on a lot of other projects lately . . . just haven't had much time to photograph and post. Will try to get working on getting those documented soon.
In the meantime, I'm thinking about writing up a little tute on how to make this little block. I found instructions for a similar-ish block that helped me figure out how to do it, but I changed it around to give that alternating pinwheel effect. There may be instructions out there somewhere already, but I sure couldn't find any.
Did anyone else get their craft on this weekend?
