Pinwheel mania!

Started the Pinwheel mania. I sewed all the way around the two charm squares. Did this the Missouri Star Way.

They are very cute! Starting to really like these color selections! My niece did a great job!
Thirty pinwheels down! 118 left!
The Hubbie gave me the most adorable purse! My new obsession with Owls gave him the inspiration! Love it! I am such a blessed wife!

TIME! Where are you going?? is December 12.

How am I going to do this? I have not been able to get anything done! Not a single stitch. So much to do for the kids and the hubby. Christmas seems to steal my time and now I have less and less time to get this quilt done. Looks like I might be sending this quilt overnight mail!

Sigh! How does everyone do this?

Have a great night, all!

PS...Christmas JOY!

My Dilemma

I am not very good at math.

I knew that.  Before I got into quilting, I knew that I had to measure and do math and such.

However, I am not very good at it.

So....let's be honest. I avoid it.

So, when I put my quilt backing fabric up to my finished top and....DOH! It is about 3 inches lacking in width. With the selvages still on! I am problem-solving. How do I fix this?

So....I have cut my charms in half...and I am sewing them together lengthwise. Then, I think I am going to cut off the selvages and sew on this 2.5 inch strip to either side of the quilt to add width. I have no idea how this is going to look or work in the end...but Hey.

Gotta give it a try!
