If at first . . . .

My daughter requested a baby quilt for a friend of hers and her husband. I started off with this

Which makes this, a double pinwheel.

12 blocks put together with a little sashing makes a quilt top:
I love it, but they were thinking of something softer . . . . So, I put the red double pinwheels away and shifted to pinks, aquas and yellows.

Stars . . . . I also love stars! (But I love everything quilt related.)

Wonky points, a different star block for me.

Here's one possible layout. No sashing, the star blocks finish at 8", so a 40" square should be about right. I tried it jumbled, but I like this arrangement better. I got the OK, so here she is, a soft baby girl quilt, all sewn together.

The top is done! Measures 40" X 40", all made from stash. Wonky stars, tutorial HERE.

Since I just finished this top, I'll link up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday!



  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love the red quilt but for a baby, hmmm maybe your daughter is right. Both quilts are amazing though.

  2. I love both quilts, but thinking about it, the second one probably really works better for a little girl. I'm intruiged by your double pinwheel method, though. So clever!
