They say good things come to those who wait.
l first blogged about these pinwheels way back here in June 2010
and here in September 2010.
One can't hurry sometimes!!
l am so glad to see this finished and ready to be quilted. Its full of memories.
Most of the blue fabrics were collected on my first Houston visit in 2009.
l have only used conversationals as the lights, and even went as far as fussy
cutting the cute pinwheel fabric for the cornerstones.
Later the same day l decided to throw these spiderweb blocks on the wall.
They too have been sitting around brewing, mainly from lack of inspiration.
Inspiration as to what to use in the corners.
l seemed to be so close and yet so far.
Several times these have been on the design wall, and taken down
again without any further advancement.
Does that happen to anyone else?
l had my mind set that we would make a decision on these,
so we pulled out several different fabrics, cut triangles
and tried many different combinations.
But nothing was working. We tried spots, stripes,
blues and reds, till we finally gave up and walked away.
Then just as l was thinking about going to bed, l had a light bulb moment!!
Why not try using the fabric that is the centre ring in the web.
So a quick flurry of cutting, placing and standing back, and we knew!!
Sandra and l looked at each other. This was it!! we both said at the same time.
Hmmm!!! Why did it take so long to figure this one out!!
This was what those blocks were trying to tell me all along.
And l love it!!
Just a few more hours and this top will be done and dusted, and worth the wait.
Deep in the box the above blocks came from was all the left over wedges,
so l got to playing with them the next day.
Super scrappy using all the left overs.
Hmm! Maybe that's what l could call this one.
This is how they look now, all finished.
Just might need to tweek the placement of a few blocks.
These 9 will be just a small wall quilt,
maybe with a border to make it to the size l want.
Well, as always, l have left the best till last!
In my opinion of that is!!! LOL
Thanks for visiting.
