Week 4 Pinwheels

I've been having a lot of fun with the different pinwheel blocks for the quilt along that Rachel is hosting. Last week's block was by far my favorite so far. I just really like the look of the pinwheel within the star. this week the scale of the pinwheels was pretty large again. The blocks were pretty easy to make and went together really quickly. I had plans to get a lot of house work and a lot of sewing done today but I got distracted by a nap in the hammock so I will have to make up some of that ground tonight. It was just so nice to be able to sit outside and it was so pretty after all of the dreary weather we have been having lately.

I think the fabric choice for this quilt along might be one of the things that i love the most. It has been really neat to see all of the combinations come together. This week I realized I had already used a lot of my blue fabrics from my layer cake but not many of the brownish gray or the greens so I choose fabrics for those colorways. Maybe not my favorite of all the fabrics but I think it will give the depth and diversity that this quilt needs to be successful in its design. It is a little hard since I don't really know where this quilt is going or how the blocks will end up but I am trying to just relax and enjoy the process.
