The June quilt is called Dulcinea ( you can order the pdf pattern HERE) and you'll see that the quilt is made using the double pinwheel block.This is my version, done in a variety of aquas, teals, and purples mixed with a vibrant white.
Of course I changed it up just a tad. I find I am getting braver with my projects, choosing a pattern and adding my little slant to it. To someone who is a rule follower (who, me?), this is a huge step!
My quilt top is 36" x 44", includes three narrow borders, some cornerstones, and a final pieced border of 2.5" squares. The binding will either be white or striped. Suggestions welcome!
This was one of those quilts that I didn't want to chain piece for speed. Instead I made it block by block because I couldn't wait to see each block finished! The fabrics were all in my stash. I had been collecting these yummy fabrics for some time now and knew this was the quilt that needed them!
Since I'm kind of in the green and purple theme here, just want to show you the lovely mug rug I received recently from Sheila who blogs at Sheila's Quilt World. Is this not adorable? Thank you, Sheila...it is too pretty to put a mug on, so it is hanging in my kitchen!
I may do the CC post a little before or after July 1, since July 1 we celebrate our Canada Day and I might be busy with festivities.
It's a great day for quilting!
