Saturday Studio Savvy

The block for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for April is the Wacky Pinwheel in orange and brown or black.  After I worked out the pieces and made a ton of rookie mistakes, I finally had all the pieces cut out for the nine six inch blocks I needed. 
I went on to make four of the nine today~ 
I then pieced a few of the tumbler rows.  I am happy with the cut border, it looks like I wanted it to! 
And I sewed the binding on the Rainbow Churn Dash quilt with my last bit of steam today!

I'm knitting, too, but I will save that for another post!

  1. I was wondering how to finish the edge of Daddio's tumbler quilt. I love that vintage blue with all the other colors!

  2. Your wacky pinwheels look fun all together, but you have been very busy this week with the tumblers and finishing the churn dashes.

  4. You accomplished a lot today! Your pinwheel blocks look great. I love how your tumbler quilt is coming together. I like how you are doing your border with the cut tumblers. I am saving polka dot fabrics in all different colors to make a tumbler quilt. It is one of those projects where a cut 2 tumblers from each fabric as I find them and stick them in a box until I have enough. Should be a fun project!

  8. I like this picture of the tumbler quilt -- the way the pieced portion has shrunk and tidied compared to the unpieced portion is fascinating!

  9. I've never seen that wacky pinwheel before. I'll have to show that one to my sister, the quilter!

    Looks like you had a VERY productive quilting weekend.

  10. That studio was churning this weekend! Lots of great work, that first block at first glance almost looks leopard print, I had to do a double take! Very productive indeed!
