Community Quilt 39

Another blue and cream quilt… Pinwheels this time.

Some of the fabrics had water, fish, water lilies, or water birds in them, so instead of following any of the very geometric shapes of the pinwheels, I went for something quite different — water! I used a pretty pale blue to mid blue variegated thread and I think it worked well for this all-over design. I like how it gives a ‘modern quilt’ feel to this traditional pinwheel pattern.

I timed this one properly and also reset the stitch counter on my Sweet Sixteen — the quilting took 3 hours and some 80,000 stitches.

Hello –
What is the name of this pattern, or where did you get it? Thank you very much.

I only quilt the quilts, not make them, so I don’t know anything about the pattern or who made it. However, it is a pinwheel block, so try searching for those.
