Pinwheels for the Across the Pond Sew Along

I absolutely love Pinwheels, so when I saw that Pinwheels are this month's theme for the Across the Pond Sew Along I was jumping with joy. Amy's post at Amy Made That! is full of great examples of Pinwheel quilts. I am particularly intrigued with the 3D ones, they look great. This is what I've made in the past:

Adoro le girandole, così quando ho visto che le girandole erano il tema per questo mese per il Across the Pond Sew Along ho fatto i salti di gioia. Il post di Amy a Amy Made That! è pieno di esempi di quilt con girandole. Sono particolarmente attratta da quelle 3D, sono fantastiche. Questo è quello che ho creato in passato:

I made this hotpad using a template called Lil' Twister by The Country Schoolhouse. Really fun to use. Read more about it here and here.

Ho creato questa presina usando un righellino chaimato Lil' Twister di The Country Schoolhouse. Molto divertente da usare. Leggi altro su questo attrezzo qui e qui.

Using a disappearing nine patch I came up with this pincushion. I really like using linen and decided to cover a button with a tiny detail from some special linen I had in my stash. I had a little trouble with this because it was very fidgety!

Usando un blocco nove toppe a scomparsa ho creato questo puntaspilli. Mi piace tantissimo usare il lino ed ho deciso di ricoprire un bottone con un dettaglio piccolissimo prendendolo da un lino speciale che avevo già. Ho avuto qualche problema perché era molto piccolo!

Will soon be joining the Flickr group for Across The Pond with some photos of a new Pinwheel creation. How can I resist?

Voglio partecipare al Flickr group for Across The Pond con delle foto di una nuova creazione con girandole. Come posso resistere?

  2. I have the lil twister--what a great idea! Thanks for linking up.

  3. Your creations are just fabulous! So glad you're joining us Across The Pond!

  4. Lovely projects! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Cute! I made a mini-twister quilt. It was easier than I thought, but glad it was mini. Love the linen too.

  6. I love your pinwheel hot pad. I have a lil'twister but haven;t tried it yet. I will have to now , after seeing how cute yours is!
    Love your pincushion. It is very elegant!


  7. Your pinwheel hotpad looks great - so fun and cheery for the kitchen!

  8. I love the Daisy Pinwheel, thank you so much for sharing it. I can see this as part of my Christmas quilt for our new granddaughter.

  9. Wonderful colors! You have a bright and beautiful website!

  10. Your pinwheel hot pad looks great and the linen is very pretty. Is the linen hard to sew with? Or I guess I'm asking if it's much different from the quilting cotton in terms of manageability?

  11. Very nice! I could do with one of those.
