My fabrics were from a Hoffman Bali Cracker package (layer cake squares) called Brown Sugar. For my background fabric I chose a creamy marbled batik that looked great with it, much more interesting than a plain solid.
This is one of those sew-cut-sew-cut type of patterns. First you make pinwheels like the ones above. Then you cut them just right, rearrange the pieces, and finally sew them back together to make the finished blocks.
The backing for this quilt is a brown minky fabric. I ordered this from Missouri Star Quilt Company. Most minky fabrics are around 60" wide, and this was extra wide (90") and not as easy to find. I was glad not to have to piece the back together, though. I quilted it with one of my new pantographs called Tivoli.
Thanks for visiting and checking out my work. I'll be liking up with Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
