Tumbling pinwheels

The pink and brown top that I've been working on is still growing. I thought it would be fun to add some pinwheels into the mix, so I'm sewing away. The strips I have left are just wide enough to make a 6" pinwheel. Now where they will end up on this quilt is still the question, but it's been fun to figure out how to best use the left over fabric pieces.

With all of the storms raging out there, it seems that there have been quite a few blogs doing giveaways. If you hop over to Bed of Roses, put your name in the hat for a signed copy of Bonnie Hunter's new book. Now how cool is that? And Vintage Sandy is also have a sweet little giveaway to check out. And just one more, cause it is nice to do things in threes - visit Lappestua
for a lovely selection of Easter fabrics.

A few months ago I signed up for a Pay It Foward with Shelly over at Prairie Moon Quilts. Shelly sent me this lovely vintage doily that she embroidered. Shelly knows that I love vintage things and I love all things tea (you can visit my thrifting blog). She took the time to unpick all of the crochet lace edging, fixed the middle section and embroidered the cute teapot.

I was so delighted to receive this PIF, and now I am offering to pay it forward to three receipients if you will just sign up on this post.

I hope that everyone is staying warm and safe. Enjoy your weekend and Happy Quilting!
