What's on the bed?

Jo K at Jo's Country Junction asked what's on my bed.  Truthfully, my bed's not made yet -- Sunday is sheet washing day -- so I'll show what's on the beds in the guest room.


The quilt on the right is "Labor Day Madness" from Nickel Quilts.  Because of the way the pinwheels are made, you end up with an equal number of identical pinwheels that spin in the opposite direction.  The book suggests you make the quilt on the left with the remainder.  My dilemma was that I needed to make 28 more pinwheels to have enough for an equal-size quilt.  Which left me with 28 more pinwheels spinning back in the original direction!

My Solution  (apologies for the terrible photo):


These are three of my favorite quilts.

Thank you, Jo, for asking.

  1. Ha ha ha - that IS a terrible picture. :-) The quilts are beautiful, though.

    1. Thanks. That pic was taken at a quilt show -- bad lighting, bad camera. Would have taken a new one today but it's packed away with other strippy quilts I used in a lecture last week.

  3. I made the same two from nickel quilts and had I shown what was on the spare bed, it would have been labor day madness.

  4. I made those quilts too. I like to have pairs of quilts, one out covering the whole bed and the other folded across the foot of the bed, so those were perfect. They are two of my favourites. Yours look fab on your twin beds.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. It's ridiculously cold here, too. We've already had the high for the day -- 29F at 5 a.m., going down to the teens tonight and single digits tomorrow. So much for living in the Sunny South!

  5. All three quilts look great--love the spark from the cheddar fabric!
