|Just a cheap piece of fabric that I bought for $1 a yard at Walmart!|
2. I put them all in one pile and then sliced the 8 squares along the horizontal, vertical and both diagonals. Now I have 8 piles of triangles.
3. Then I did the same thing with a stack of 4 blue 9-1/2" squares.
4. I added some blue 2-1/2" strips and made pinwheels. Using only one stack of print triangles at a time, I created pinwheel blocks.
5. As you can see, the print captured in each triangle spins around from the center, each block unique. No pattern today (maybe next Halloween), but here is the quilt.
|Halloween Pinwheel Quilt (2002) - one of my favorite quilts. The fabric does all the work.|
|I made a freezer paper template and cut black bats from fused fabric.|
|Here is one black bat with garlands of pumpkins and tiny bats.|
|3 bats scattered on my 12-1/2" background square.|
|Four bats in a circle. Note the beautiful secondary design in the center.|
Since it's just a small one square project, I was able to quickly free-motion quilt it. Here it is from the back.
|You can see my quilting better from the wrong side.|
