Happy Mail!

I received a box of happiness this week from dear reader, Ila. The box contained a fantastic quilt top and another project from “Aunt Ann.” We’ve actually had a lot of rain lately and I haven’t had a chance to take a good photo of the top yet, but it deserved its own post anyway. This is the project.

They are pinwheels! Each triangle is finished with its own bit of batting and the pieces are whip stitched together. The batting looks to be a this flannel blanket.

I hope you can see from these next photos how the blocks are constructed.

The blocks end up looking the same on front and back. How cool is that?

The print in this block reminds me of fried eggs. 😁

These pieces are so soft! I’ll have to ponder where to go with these, but you can bet this project will be finished!

Thank you, Ila! Have a great day everyone!

    Interesting. I’ve never seen blocks finished on both sides like this. Being that they are so soft, I wonder if they were intended for a baby blanket or two?

    I love the clothing/fabrics Aunt Ann had to work with. The pairings are cheerful to me. Wow, her stitches were so evenly spaced. The whipstitching and batting makes me imagine that Ann took her time and just plain enjoyed the process of each little set coming together.

  4. Fascinating! I have never seen anything quite like that. We do have a similar hand-me-down project, but much larger pieces. I’ll be interested in seeing how you finish it.

    Could you finish this pot holder style with sashing?

    As I scrolled through our post, I kept thinking these pieces look so soft, and then you took the words right out of my mouth!
