In my search for nearly-finished UFOs to take to S'mores retreat next week I came across a box labeled Asian Pinwheel.
I wrote about these blocks late last year, how I set out to make one for a comfort quilt and got carried away. And ended up making a pineapple block instead.
Thinking all I had to do was lay out the blocks in a 4x5 setting and add the snowball corners, I jumped right in.
Oh no! Only 10 of the 20 blocks were finished. One of the 10 had too-white corners.
|Corners too white|
And one had a totally different feature fabric from the cranes I had been using.
The rest of the blocks were cut and it appeared I might have enough crane fabric to replace the odd block. Now I'm running out of time -- need to prep for a class I'm teaching tomorrow...... Maybe I could make do with 16 blocks in a 4x4 setting. Sigh.
Not happy with the look of the snowball corners coming together, maybe a sashing would help. But what color, what fabric, how big, oh my! This much thought over what will be a comfort quilt!

Time to put it back in the box. I ALMOST had a finish this Friday. I was THIS close (holding thumb and index finger 1/2" apart) .....
Four-patch Posey class tomorrow. Handbells on Sunday, then prep for guild program on Monday. AND pack for S'mores retreat starting Monday afternoon. AND make meals and meal-plan for my Main Man to have while I'm gone. AND scrub the kitchen floor....
Hope your Friday was better than mine.
