Trimmed and Squared.

I have gradually been tidying up my half square triangle units using a rotating cutting board and a bloc loc ruler. Now I'm ready to sew the pinwheel blocks together and will use the Featherweight 221 again for this piecing process. I am hoping this will be a good sized Quilt, but still have some extra fabric if more blocks are needed.

Pink and White Irish Chain.

An Irish Chain Quilt has been on my "want to make" list for quite a time and I have been working with some pink 1930s reproduction fabric combined with white homespun. This little Quilt is a learning process and I will send it to Cheryl for her Blankets of Love project when it is finished. The pink squares are one inch and the little quilt will be about 19" square. I pieced it with the Featherweight 221, which is sewing beautifully.
