I have a plan. Those who know me are in no way surprised. I always have a plan. In fact I seem to be made up of plans. Preferably big plans. One more realistic than the other but plans nonetheless.
This particular plan is achievable though. It goes something like this: make a quilt for every bed in the house. Some quick calculus learns us that that would be 3 quilts. So far no sweat.
But then some hard decisions concerning designs need to be made. For one of them I am set on making pin wheel blocks. As I've never done them before and as I found a great tutorial on doing them without any fabric loss I thought I'd better have a go at them on a small scale. Just to be on the safe side.
I made 6 trial blocks and ended up turning them into a quilted placemat.
I can recommend two things. One, do make some pinwheels. They are so much fun to make. And two, turn your trial blocks into placemats. Before you know it you have a table of happiness.
