Smile Worthy

Recently I joined in on the fun at Whims and Fancies where there's a trunk show going on.  I think this is the first time I've taken part in such a display.  I'm enjoying the comments as well as viewing the many other displays.

One of the quilts getting the most reaction is this one:

I wrote just a little bit about it here before I switched blogs.  The pattern is from Eleanor Burns' and is Quilt In A Day "Double Pinwheels".  This one in the image is huge, measuring 91" x 113".  It's shown on a full/double bed.  It was tied as it was a 'many hands' quilt after the piecing was done, with perle cotton which I prefer over yarn.

What makes me smile about the comments on this over at the trunk show, is that everyone thinks it is a black and white quilt, and certainly the photo lends to that impression.  The "black" is actually a very dark teal of a packed hydrangea patterned fabric.
This close-up block shows it a little better.  My apologies for the photo quality; my scanner doesn't want to work with this computer so I had to take a photo of a photo.  Another thing I liked about this quilt was that I had found a white-on-white fabric of which the pattern was a bit like scattered windmill blades fitting in well with the pinwheel/windmill block.
Now I'm thinking I just might have to make it in black and white...just not so big!


  1. DP was my first finished quilt. It would be stunning in black/white/gray. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Beautiful quilt, whether we see it as black and white or when it's showing its true colors! Looks like it would be fun to make one of these.
