For my birthday last year, the DH said I could buy some fabric for my present... which was pretty convinient since I'd just discovered Mendocino for sale on Etsy and felt my fabric stash would not be complete without it. Dramatic I know.
It's been sitting in my fabric drawers since then. Occassionally I would take it out and look at the pretty mermaids and the colours, and then put it away again. I could not decide what to make with it. So in search of inspiration, I looked through my Flickr favourites, of which a large number are pinwheel quilts.
Dana over at the Old Red Barn Co made this quilt a wee while ago which I absolutely love... Actually I pretty much love all Dana's quilts. Anyway, last week while watching Son's of Anarchy for the first time, I began cutting squares. 256 to be exact. So here are my blocks in the making...
7 down. 57 to go. I am motivated though. This is my the first quilt I am actually making for me! Not to give as a gift or donate! A quilt for my bed. For me!
I hope you all had a very merry Christmas. We sure did. Lots of eating. Laughing. And gifts. I'll post a few pics of Christmas shortly. Until then - happy sewing everyone :)
