Spare Parts

The Saga Continues

I had great hopes I would have Spare Parts finished by Friday.  NOT.

I last left you with this ...

...  I was contemplating should I add some weightier blocks on the lower right to balance the upper left when The Joyful Quilter suggested using my pinwheels on the LEFT to balance the light.  Thank you Joyful!

I needed to add another round of spacer strips but ran into some issues with squareness that involved revising a few seam allowances.  And the pinwheels needed to be trimmed down a bit to fit.  And I needed to make a few more to go across the top ...

But now I'm counting it done!  Except for borders, which will go on next week.  I've chosen this fabric which has all the colors in it.

It will be a nice sized snuggle quilt that some kid -- or any adult for that matter -- will love.

Linking up with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.


  1. Woohoo! It's bright and beautiful!
    I love those splatter stars in the border fabric. Perfect choice!

  2. I love it! Your pinwheels added just the balance it needed. Your border fabric will finish it off nicely, and some kid will surely love it.

  3. I love the pinwheels going along the top and left, balancing with the four patches on the right and bottom! That is a beautiful quilt, Libby! You've inspired me to get back to mine!

  4. Oh I love it! And your border fabric is perfect. What a happy, colorful quilt.

  5. Very bright and fun! You did a great job of working in those orphan blocks. Adding the pinwheels on the other side was a great idea.

  6. Congrats on such a great use of spare parts. It is so colorful and nicely balanced.

  7. Oh, wow!! That REALLY works! Thanks for the shout out. SEW glad I could help!
