Completed Puzzle

Image
The flimsy of Pinwheel Puzzle is finished and ready to be sent to a longarmer for quilting. I'm not pleased with the corner blocks because of the dark background fabrics, but they were in the kit and materials were tight. I tried to make them look "planned" by placing them in the corners. The blocks do not stand out as much in person as they do in the photo. 
Even with the pattern measure errors, I am pleased with the result. I love the rich tones of the colors in this quilt. Here's a close up of some of the fabrics and the blocks. 


Everything but the borders were completed during Sunday afternoon FaceTime calls with my sister and niece.

Seams Galore

The Pinwheel Puzzle quilt has many seams to match, to sew over, and to press. I tend to use a lot of pins when dealing with multiple seams or a long seam. I think it's a throwback to the days I made clothing.
All the blocks are sewn together, and this week I will be adding borders - a thin one and a wide, outer border. I ordered the outer border fabric on Etsy, and it arrived on Saturday.

I like knitting with Regia yarn: it makes a nice sock and wears well, too.
