This quilt turned out so calm and breezy looking even though it was packed with different fabrics.
This is what became of all the HST’s I showed you a few weeks ago.
I used this method to make the pinwheels (scroll to the bottom of the post). I started with 6 ½” squares…and ended up with 7 ½” pinwheels after trimming. Once you finish the pinwheels all you need is 2 ½” x 7 ½” strips and 2 ½” squares to make up this simple quilt.
It’s full of fabrics from my stash and scrap bin…I had a lot more neutrals than I thought once I started sorting. That big black and white Kaffe Fassett polka dot is my favorite.
It measures about 47” x 56”. A pod of Orcas swam by to inspect my work while we were at this beach…and then my 4 year old dumped a beach bucket full of sand in my van. :)
Never a dull moment here! Happy quilting!
Wow, it looks great and breezy! I love it too. Jana
I really love this quilt! I love that the sashing is low volume, but still different fabrics. Fantastic :)
What a great combination of fabrics! So pretty.
love a scrappy quilt they always looook such fun x
Beautiful quilt and lovely beach pictures!
Absolutely beautiful-the colors are fantastic. I'm working on a second quilt from your book now-I made the rainbow square quilt and am now making a twin size of Sweets. Your patterns are well explained and easy to follow-perhaps another book will be in your future??
It was so appropriate to photograph this quilt at the beach. It has that calm blue sky, ocean, sandy beach look about it. Love your color combinations.
Sweet!! A pod of Orcas? Really?
Beautiful...love the fabrics and pinwheels are a fav! Great job.
Nice color palette.
Love the colors. Have to add this one to my bucket list.
This quilt came together so nicely and your fabric selection is great!
This is beautiful! I would love to learn how to quilt!
beautiful! just found you while blog surfing for new quilting friends.

So sweet and refreshing! You keep adding to my quilt wish / to do list! Best, Kate

It looks easy and breezy! Love the colors.
Love that! All the blues and greens remind me of beach glass.
And your neutrals are kind of like mine. Anymore mine have things in the background like musical notes, apple seeds, bugs and eyeballs. I have gotten away from the tone-on-tone look for neutrals for the most part.
So pretty: I love the colors that you used. And a pod of orcas: how lucky are you to have seen them!!! Hope the sand comes out too!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
You are hilarious!!! Showing a GREAT quilt (love the colors!!) and then BAM!!! back to earth with the sand. lol Life is like that.... catch a wave and your sitting on top of the world... still have to get home though. :)
Thanks for sharing the great and fun quilt!!

I love that the far away view is so light and airy looking but that there is so much detail when you see the quilt up close - that a perfect balancing act.
Also I'm so jealous of seeing a pod of Orcas - just wow!
All the blues and greens remind me of sea glass. It is a fun quilt.
Sea glass and pinwheels…can't get any better than that! Love it!
Love pinwheels....and the colors are perfect for a breezy day. Sand and 4 year olds...(sigh).

Oh, man, that quilt and the beach backdrop are making me long for summer days - sandy kids feet all over the car and everything!
Love your colors in your quilt. Looks great. We frequent the beach and my 4 year old also likes to take back as much as she can of the beach that usually ends up all over the car and in the tracks of the back seats.

Oh gorgeous!!! This is such a simple yet striking quilt. Just like everything you make it has such a fresh style. I made a pinwheel quilt once but one pinwheel was going the opposite direction and I didn't notice till quilting it. Oh well! I'm sure there will be another one someday and hopefully I'll get them all going the right way:)

Very nice. I need to try a low volume quilt one of these days...
Just stunning!! I love the mix of fabrics. I always find it interesting to see what other people choose to put together.
Great quilt. I love that size quilt, and your colors are great.
