I had decided that I would use 2 different blocks in my quilt. I love me a good pinwheel quilt
So I made myself some little patterns. I had decided to do 12 inch blocks since this is my first full sized quilt. I pressed out my fabrics and got to cutting. When I got a good sized pile of pieces cut out I decided it was time to test my quilting abilities.
It turns out my quilting abilities are pretty good but my math or maybe just my direction following abilities aren't so good. My pinwheel block came out to be a 12 inch square but my roman square block was only 9 inches. Apparently I was looking at the wrong measurements when I made my pattern piece for that one. Oops!
Here are my first 4 blocks
At this point I decided that I had cut too many pieces to scrap the roman square and I liked to way it turned out. So I came to the decision to make 2 quilts (yes I know I am nuts) at the same time. I will keep the pinwheel for myself and give the other as a super special surprise for someone.
We'll see how it all turns out but I am super excited and enjoying the process so far.
