I just love pinwheels! I use them in quilts whenever possible, so that led me to thinking why not make a quilt that is all pinwheels?! This is “Preppy Pinwheels”, it is a free pattern from us to you. Many of our Beginning Quilting students have been making this quilt lately, it is a wonderful first quilt. It is simple, especially if you use Thangles (in the 3″ size, 1 package is needed) . We made every pinwheel a different fabric, so it can also be a great use of scrap!
P.S. We have a great tutorial on how to use Thangles here!
We are totally in love with Emily Taylor and her fabrics for Riley Blake Designs. They are just stunning, and to top it off she is local to Utah which we love! This darling quilt is a free pattern that Emily has designed that you can print off for yourself on her blog, just click here to find it. It is called “A Quilt for Claire” , and is a great beginning quilting project. If you are a pro, it is a great “whip it up in an afternoon” project. We have put the quilt up in a kit that has been flying out the door. We love Emily’s Verona fabrics, but this pattern is a great showcase for any collection!
If I have a little girl someday, I will give her this quilt. I love the simplicity of the design and the soft colors. I made this quilt using the Daisy Cottage collection of fabrics, but it could be made with anything that you love. These fabrics are very girly, but you can change the fabrics to work wonderfully for a boy. This is a great go- to baby quilt for all of those baby showers you will be attending this spring. We are giving you the pattern, it is easy and fast and very beginner friendly. Just follow the link below for the instructions. This quilt is designed to work with 2 sets of 5″ charm squares plus a complimentary fabric. We are selling kits with exactly the fabrics we used, they include everything for the quilt top, pre-cut pink bias binding and the backing fabric, click here to order one. Enjoy!
