Have you ever see a Lil Twister Pinwheel Quilt? You start with this:
And by using the Lil Twister Pinwheel Quilt Template (for 5″ squares) by Country Schoolhouse (and sewing the new squares together) you come out with this:
The first time I tried to cut out the squares I cut into the next row of squares 😦 I put this project on hold until my sister-in-law came to visit. Thanks to Angi for helping me figure out what I was doing wrong.
Note to self: Don’t run the rotary cutter all the way to the corners – cut the corners out with scissors.
Oh, and since I was wearing a left wrist brace (due to spraining my wrist) at the time, I had to be creative in holding down the template. I ended up using a full can of Chili (about 15 oz) as a weight and then holding the can. The worst problem was my hand was definitely hurting by the time I was done.
I think it turned out pretty good. What have you made lately?
