This quilt has been a long time coming.
I mean a loooong time.
As in, I promised my niece a quilt and then promptly forgot about it.
It added lots of texture, and I was trying to tone down the brown some.
The pattern is a snowballed pinwheel which is inspired by a Missouri Star Block Magazine pattern, theirs used 5" blocks, but I blew it up to 10" blocks.
Fabrics are Kona Cottons, a Makower UK print stripe and a Brother Sister Design print.
Batting is TWO layers of Pellon soft and crafty. That stuff is really thin, and I wanted this quilt to be warm and textured.
Thread is all Aurifil. Pieced in neutral 40 wt. Quilted in White 40 wt., Blue and Pink 50 wt.
Size is 81" x 94" Queen. (I can't remember the last time I made (finished) a large quilt like this.
Total quilting time: 886 minutes (14.76 hours) That doesn't include any other parts of quilt making, pure quilting time, only.
I do have some left over fabric, along with some bonus blocks that I'll talk about in a future post.
