I've posted about this one before, back this summer when I made it and entered it into a contest. I call it "Windy Days Pinwheels."
This quilt is 36 1/2" x 36 1/2".
In the previous Blogger's Quilt Festivals I've posted about each of my girls' quilts (here and here). They coordinate and use a lot of the same fabrics, so it only made sense for me to post about my little boy's quilt this time! I used a lot of the same fabrics again, but just omitted the girly-er prints and used a darker cranberry instead of the rose pink. I also started collecting extra fabrics in these color families as soon as I found out he was a boy, so 2 1/2 years of collecting creates quite the stash. :)
Here's a peek after I chain pieced all 96 half square triangle units together!
My little guy thought it was only fair if he got to help make his own quilt! I hid the rotary cutter--he was safe, don't worry! Although I probably should have hidden it from myself. Not long after I took this picture, while trimming down the half square triangle blocks, I proceeded to trim a bit off my own finger! It was a horrifying sight, but my fingertip healed much better than anyone anticipated. My left pointer finger is just a bit more pointy now. :)
After I got up the nerve to touch the rotary cutter again, I pretty quickly finished up piecing his quilt. I machine quilted it on my sewing machine with a simple diamond grid pattern and added the binding.
