March was a few months ago now, but with burning my fingers and then internship homework, I got a little behind on my One Shiny Bee blocks. Today I was finally able to devote some time to personal quilting, and this is what I came up with.
The person who sent out fabric and inspiration this month asked for pinwheels. I took the inspiration for the first two blocks from this series of tutorials.
I love this block, and the combination of the pink/red and green.
Flying geese are such a fun quilting motif, and I like how they integrate into a pinwheel here. I added in my own blue solid fabric since it matched so well with the blue fabric included in my packet.
I wanted to include a third block to make up for the fact that I'm 3 months (wince) late. This was improvisationally pieced from my leftover pieces of fabric.
It was such a thrill to be back in my sewing room and making something for fun. I'm looking forward to being back at sewing again this summer!
