Each pile here has 10 blocks in it so I have 40, 10 inch blocks, more than enough for a quilt.
I think I kind of got carried away when I was making them in 1999. I was having so much fun hand piecing them, YES I Said HAND PIECING them!
Then they were put away. I have no idea why, it's too long ago. Anyway I did get them out a year ago (I think) and had to hand wash them all, as some of them had stains on them. I think the stains may have been from me pricking my finger as I sewed them. The stains came out, but for some other reason I packed them away again without pressing them.
40 Whirlygig/Pinwheel Blocks
I used some 1930's fabrics that I had fallen in love with, and then added other fabrics that I liked too. All the blocks have red centres.
Look at those Bunnies & Kittens, oh Scotty dogs too. They're just too cute.
I love the Trolley, and Paisley print
More Scotty dogs, a flower picking Fairy, and don't forget Teddies
