Summer Quilt - Sherbert

I have been a very busy bee on the sewing machine. I have been steadily working on finishing a quilt for my bed. I decided to take my 9-patches and turn them into the Sister's Choice block. 81 blocks later, a little sashing in between, so I could use the quilt as you go method. The hubster had to help keep the quilt on the kitchen table while Isewed the big blocks together. Later, Josey held it in place for the binding. I think it looks very antiquey. Works for me. I love stripes and plaids placed with a nice calico. Sister's Choice finished sister's choice quilting I even managed a label -- go me! Sister's choice label

Pinwheels! Very fast block. I am planning to use the Qulit as You Go method. I think these are a perfect size to play with that technique. There is another 5 more blocks to go. One could still jump in and make this one.
