Here it is finished!! It really is lovely but I'm thinking that my satin stitched hearts are a bit too naive (in other words, my stitching is not up to scratch!!). I think maybe that after looking at it for a few days, I'll get annoyed with them and may just decide to replace them with some running stitch hearts...... we'll see.
Isn't it neat the friendships you make in bloggy land? And I also love how one thing lead to another which leads to another...and so on....
Firstly it was so exciting that I won a giveaway on Di's blog !! Her posts are always fun and interesting to read and her giveaway competition was a good laugh (I fold my undies the same way Di folds hers!!). It was SO COOL to receive a pack of Moda charm squares in the post from her. Aren't they just gorgeous :-) - they are laid out on some fabric I bought to go with them....
As soon as I saw them I knew they would make a brilliant pinwheel quilt; and have been pondering lately exactly how I would do it... Yesterday on Freebies for Crafters there was a link for fast pinwheels using a charm pack..!! This sounded like me - here's the first one; it really was quick and easy.
Rae Ann from Cutie Pinwheel (and the famous Stash Manicure blog) and I had a little swap. Here is the parcel I received from her!! A cookbook, pretty little spoon, funky pen, a notepad...and guess what else.. a fat quarter of the most perfect fabric to go with Di's charm pack!!
SO fitting that fabric from Cutie Pinwheel will go into a pinwheel quilt!!
Have a great Sunday everyone!!
