Hello There! Secret Sewing Reveal

Hello There! 
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It’s great to be back after the rush, illnesses, hustle and bustle of the holidays!  Tons have been going on here in my little corner of the world –
some sad,
some hard,
some joyous and silly.
Most of all, it’s been fabulous having time with famiy and friends.  My husband gave me a happy surprise by taking extra time off!  I love when he does that! 

I’m starting off slow this year with a reveal of a secret sewing project! 

Finished Quilt
Well, here is some secret sewing I completed!
Step One:  Fabric Selection
I chose to use Kanvas Studios' for Benartex Dancing Dragonflies.  

This was my background fabric. I need to get the name!  
One of my goals is to learn the designer's names and their line of fabric that I love!  

Step Two:  Sew a half square triangle - more like 72 HSTs!  

Step Three:  Now sew those HSTs into pinwheels!  Oh, remember to take apart and restitch the pinwheels that are going the wrong direction!  

Step Four:  Beg my longarm quilter to have it done in time for Christmas! (She did!)

Step Five:  A bound and labeled quilt!

I'm linking up to the following parties! Stop by and join the fun!


  1. Your pinwheel quilt is gorgeous! There's so much you can do with HSTs. It's always good to know which designer make what, my favourites are Anna Maria Horner and Tula Pink :)

  2. Very beautiful fabric!!! I love the blues and greens!

    1. Thank you so much! I'm making another quilt of the same fabric! :)

  3. what a beautiful quilt! great job

  4. Thank you so much for your kind comments! I checked out Tula Pink and Anna Marie. Nice fabrics!

    I haven't found a favorite designer - yet. But I did fall in love with Kate Spain's Daydream and Happy Tones!

    Perhaps one day..... :)
