Last fall I stumbled across a beautiful old handmade quilt at an antiques store. I wanted to bring it home, but it wasn’t in my budget. I did think to snap a quick photo. That quilt never left my mind.
Since then I’ve done some quick searches to try to figure out the pattern, but I never really found anything. Honestly, I didn’t look all that hard. Do you know what it is? I assume it is some sort of pinwheel variation. I found something similar, but it wasn’t quite the same.
One day it dawned on me to reproduce it. So I did, in mini version. Have I mentioned I’m obsessed with mini quilts at the moment?
I didn’t hand piece my blocks like the original, but I did hand sew the rest. The hand quilting is my favorite part. This is why I’m in love with mini quilts. Hand quilting a mini - yes. A full size quilt, uh, I’m not quite on board with that just yet, but I’ve jumped into crazier waters ;-)
