Blossom Heart Quilts, June 7


Blossom Heart Quilts,Rainbow Scrap Challenge,Pinwheel Row quilts

When searching through my quilt photos I found two Project Linus quilts for kids which have circles on the fleece backing.  The first one has bright colored circles, a fun addition to the I Spy theme on the front.

The second one has a fleece backing of sports balls, soccer, footblall, baseball and basketball.  It goes well with the boy themed charm squares on the front.

These next two quilts have been really fun to do.  Two of my major WIPs have now become flimsies except for white borders.  These are my Pinwheel Row quilts 1 and 2.  The first one was pretty much done a while back, using HSTs from a giveaway to make the larger pinwheel blocks.  I used two rows of them and added other rows and strips of little pinwheels.  The bottom row consists of yo-yoes and a strip of round gear shapes, lots of circles there.

I boxed up all the leftovers and forgot about them until last week.  Ahah!  Maybe I could add a good bit more to make a second one of the same size, about 42 x 42 inches.  When I unpacked the box I was really surprised to find two more complete pinwheel rows plus two extra blocks and other strip groups already done.  There were also plenty more of the small pinwheel strips.  In less than an hour I had the second top completely laid out.  Another half hour and it was all pieced, using every pinwheel block and strip.  This quilt also has circles in a medium teal blue strip among the little pinwheels.

Now I don't know which one I prefer, maybe the second.  Both of them just happened as I went along and the pieces fell into place.   I'm planning to make more row quilts from now on. 

I hope to see what fun things all of you are doing this month. Join me for Rainbow Scrap Challenge at

  1. I cannot pick a favourite both row quilts are very pleasing to the eye. Kids quilts look good too nice to use fleece as a backing so cuddly and warm

  2. I love how your two row quilts are coming along. They are both wonderful, don't think I could choose a favorite.
