Pattern Release: Pinwheels Over Patchwork

Are you looking for a fresh pattern to show off your favorite precuts?  Then please check out my newest pattern, \”Pinwheels Over Patchwork.\”  This pattern idea came to me as I was impatiently awaiting the arrival of the \”Farmhouse\” fabric yardage and precuts I had preordered last spring.  \”Farmhouse\” is a lovely line of vintage inspired, country cozy fabrics designed by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Company for Moda.  While I have many plans for my stash of this fabric, I knew immediately that I wanted to design a special table topper for my kitchen, one that would show off all the fabric in the line with a cheerful flair.  And what is more cheerful than pinwheels?

\”Pinwheels Over Patchwork\” is 40 inches square, making it a great size to grace your table or hang on your wall.  The pattern is precut friendly.  If you have two favorite charm packs or one jelly roll along with a bit of yardage, you are all set.  Here is a breakdown of the fabric requirements for the top:

2 Charm Packs
(use 59 mediums/darks from the charm packs)  

-OR- 1 Jelly Roll (use 15 strips)

Neutral pinwheels (1/2 yard)
Inner Border (1/4 yard)
Outer Border (1/2 yard)

Binding (1/3 yard; however, if you are working with a jelly roll, I would definitely do a scrappy binding with the remaining jelly roll strips!)

This quilt top is a project you could complete in a weekend, and it would make a great gift.  In fact, I have a Christmas version nearly complete that I think will be lovely!  (My mom and sister may have to duke it out over who nabs that quilt for their holiday table decor.) 

All of my patterns are available for purchase on my Carried Away Quilting Etsy Shop.

Once again the charming quilting on my sample was done by Barb Erickson at Quilts on Broadway.  Thank you Barb!

Thank you for stopping by my blog!  Here\’s hoping you get carried away quilting often!
