Merry! & a winner

Yes, as in Merry Christmas! I came across several of the pinwheel blocks recently, put them on the design wall and decided to go with it. Of course, it meant making lots and lots of blocks. It was too much pinwheel so I went with the circle blocks too. All the circles are hand appliqued. Funny, I just really enjoy hand appliqueing circles – I find it so relaxing.

I chose plain borders to unbusy (a word?) the quilt a little. Thinking about quilting it myself, using a medalion in each of the blocks which consist of four blocks as above. It is very doubtful that it will be quilted for this Christmas, but it certainly allows me to look forward to a new Christmas quilt in the living room next Christmas!

And the backing…The white pinwheel blocks were also in my stash. Originally I was just going to use one fabric for the backing, but don’t want the orphan blocks mounting up too high, so I pieced. No leftover blocks! Yay me – a finished flimsy, backing and less orphan blocks in the bin.

And the comment by TheGranChris will be receiving the leftovers from Connection. I hope she enjoys them!
