part of my 2013 goal is to make one quilt top a month using my stash of fabric.
the quilt tops i don't have a personal purpose for will be donated to my parent's church to go towards humanitarian projects.
apparently they will do the rest if the tops are supplied to them (makes it easier for me!)
so as far as this quilt goes, it has been cut out for at least four years.
it was originally intended for an old friend from high school as a baby shower gift.  well, that baby is four now and i still had the pieces.
the pinwheels went together super easily, and i would totally do another quilt like this, minus using a 1/8" seam allowance.
idk why i decided to do that way back when.

thanks for taking a peek!

Beautiful, doesn't it feel nice to mark it off your list! Oh dear, a 1/8 inch seam allowance? Cheesy You might want to do lots of extra quilting on it to hold it together since the seams will be weaker than normal.
