Autumn Pinwheels

Autumn Pinwheels - the quilt
Autumn Pinwheels - the block

Linda Franz posted on facebook today showing us a block from Quiltmaker Magazine 100 Blocks Volume 6.  It was called Pecking Order and was created by Laurie Baker.  Laurie made her block with scraps.  I called up my EQ7 and recreated the lines of the block so I could play with it for color arrangement and quilt possibilities.  This quilt is one of the color and block variations I came up with.  Look what can be done by just rearranging color!    I have dozens more.  This one is for fall.  It is totally do-able using Linda's HST Collection B (Which I have.)  You need 2 sizes from that collection (which has 12 sizes).  If the larger size is 2 inch then the smaller would be 1 inch.  You could use any size variation that you wish as long as the larger size is 2 times the smaller size.

Creating with Inklingo is just so much fun.  If you have the HST Collection B, you can make this quilt so easily by hand piecing or machine piecing.  I myself prefer hand piecing.  Now just to find the time.
