Charcoal Pinwheels

I feel like this flimsy doesn't look like my quilts, but at this point, as Honna might point out, there's really no telling what my quilts are supposed to look like.

I had a packet of various colored F8 hand-dyes that had been sitting around for a couple of years and then Waterwheel sent me a packet of FQ spots and somehow they ended up together. Nearby was a piece of Essex linen and I just started making Louisiana blocks. I had some different spots left-over from It's A Girl, and they insisted on being the cornerstones with that nice light grey lattice. I was kind of "meh" about this quilt until I got that border on and then, all at once, I loved it.

"supposed to look like" -- right!?!?!? Congrats on your flimsy finish -- very pretty!

Another nice finish. I'm partial to polka dots; especially liking the cornerstones. Methinks your days have extra hours or your weeks have extra days--you get so much accomplished!

What a delightful, happy quilt and, as the Brits say, those cornerstones are "spot on"!! Sorry, I couldn't resist that corny joke.

Hugs!
