My fabric choice was motivated by this quilt of KarrieLynn's. Isn't it beautiful?!?! It is Fandango by Kate Spain and Moda Bella Solid in Snow.
I bought my fabric from Burgundy Buttons. It arrived just a few days after I ordered. Love fast shipping!
Here are a few of my favorite fabrics from the charm pack.
Can't wait to get started on this!

This is the front. I made setting blocks so my pinwheels would be separated a bit and to make the quilt a bit larger.
And the back. My extra pinwheels fit nicely here. And I just have to say again how much I love Flora and Fauna! Wonderful colors!!
And here is a random picture of Chicago just for fun. I was there on business a few weeks ago. Beautiful city!

Unfortunately, my pictures kind of stink because by the time I get around to taking them it is dark outside. But I think you get the general idea.
These are just a few different ones I had made as of a few weeks ago.
And some ones I made last weekend.
And I made some large hexes in place of the small ones surrounded by solid.I can't wait to see how this is going to turn out!

And I have 2 more pinwheels to share from the Pinwheel Sampler Quiltalong from p.s. i quilt. These are both extras that I made, so I guess they both count as block #8.
I've actually made a bit more progress on my pinwheel quilt. I have finished the quilt top and have almost completed the backing. Haven't taken pics yet, so that will have to wait.
I also got my Botany layer cake in the mail and started on the Vintage Bear Paw quilt from Moda Bake Shop. I just love this quilt and had to try it! I am using a layer cake instead of charm packs and turnovers and it is working out perfectly so far. If this quilt turns out nice I may give it to my mom.
And last, but not least, I won't get much craftiness done this weekend because I am going to Cincinnati to run in the Flying Pig Half Marathon with my sister. We did Detroit last Fall, so now it's my turn to go to her. Should be fun!

Pillow #1 Front
Pillow #1 Back
Pillow #2 Front
Pillow #2 Back
And my 9 Patch Sampler
I got inspiration to make this quilt when I went to the Modify Tradition blog. I used a couple of their block tutorials. The rest of the block instructions, I found in a variety of places on the web.

And here is a picture with the setting blocks I decided to add to make it a larger quilt. I don't have them all finished, but I wanted to get an idea of how they would look.

This is block 6 from the pinwheel sampler quiltalong at psiquilt.
And here is block 3 from the jelly roll sampler quiltalong.
And I need to take some better pictures of this quilt I just finished. It is from the Paintbox Quiltalong at Oh Fransson!. I did not do mine in the normal paintbox way, but instead, used a Nest (by Tula Pink) layer cake. I also used the Robert Kaufman Roll Up in the Dusty color palette. I love how this turned out! The colors are just amazing in real life!
And how cool is this?!?! I won a giveaway from Modify Tradition and look at all of the cool extras they sent to me! Pretty nice, huh?

I just finished the binding on this over the weekend and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I bought the pattern from Elizabeth Hartman. Her patterns are very well written and this one gives you the option of making the quilt in many different sizes. I did the sashing on mine different from what the pattern calls for, but other than that, it's the same.
