Pinwheel quilt

I also finished this tonight. I hate it. It was supposed to be as bright as it is...a playmat for a baby or toddler. But it got all messed up as I was sewing and the thing will never lie flat, so I think I'm going to quilt with uber fat batting (normally don't like that) and I may be able to save it... Yuck.

Creatively compulsive

The reality of being me is that even when I have things on my creative to do list... 1) this month's bee block for myself 2) some beanbag orders 3) finishing up the big orange quilt and mom and dad's quilt top ... There are some nights where therapeutic sewing has to work it's way onto the to-do list. Tonight I needed it.
So I pulled out an old project... 3 wonky squares without mates and made 3 friends for them... Now I have 6 ... Coordinating in a great and odd color range, using all sorts of weird vintage and castoff fabrics. Now I just need to figure out what to do with them. Hmmmm. Thoughts?
