The Wonky Pinwheel Quilt

The Wonky Pinwheel Quilt in Honey Run

Last month, I showed off one of my new patterns, the Fan-tastic Quilt. This month, I got to preview Honey Run fabric and sew up the second quilt which is included in the Fan-tastic pattern. I call it the Wonky Pinwheel Quilt. Why? Well because there are big wonky pinwheels that repeat throughout the quilt, as well as some smaller pinwheels that also repeat throughout the quilt. It is such a fun and easy quilt to make. Its larger blocks really show off the fabric in the quilt. A great way to quilt ...

Somehow the project has been pushed aside. But let me tell you, when I saw this line of red, white, and blues, I was inspired to create something fun and I knew that it had to be ...
