Pinwheel Block Challenge - Fabric Pull

I'm excited to be part of the Pinwheel Block Challenge during April.  If you have been following along, a group of quilt pattern designers are challenging each other to re-imagine and re-interpret a traditional quilt block.  Talk about fun!  It has been amazing to see each designer take the traditional block and add their own spin on it.  

Here are links if you want to take a look at the quilts I made during the Snowball Block Challenge and the Rail Fence Block Challenge.  

Each Monday in April, the participating designers will be sharing about the challenge on their Instagram feeds.  Some of us are adding other social media too.   If you don't already follow me on Instagram, I'm @masterpiecequilting 

This week I'm sharing the fabrics that I'm using for the challenge.  My quilting style is modern traditional so I'm making my version of the traditional pinwheel block using bright, modern solids.  I've grabbed a fat quarter bundle of Michael Miller Cotton Couture Sew Colorful Colorwheel and am pairing it with Powderblue and Candlelight solid yardage.  And yes, these fabrics may look familiar, it is the same group I used for my Snowball Block Challenge.  

If you want to use the same fabrics that I am using, they are available in my Etsy shop.

Here is the list of Instagram handles of the participating designers.  Each of us are sharing our fabric pull and / or color scheme on Monday April 5th.  















I can't wait to see what everyone is selecting for their fabrics and I hope that you will take a look too! Be sure to follow each of the designers so you don't miss their posts during this fun challenge.
