Parallelo Pinwheels

 

5648quilt

This happy quilt was created for the Michael Miller Petal Pinwheels Challenge of The Modern Quilt Guild, however was not finished in time to enter the competition. This 47.5″ x 57.5″ geometric quilt was inspired by a parallelogram AccuQuilt Studio Die. The concentric squares quilting design was done with a walking foot and creates a secondary design element best viewed from the back of the quilt.

Parallelo Pinwheels Close upI entered Parallelo Pinwheels in the Tree City Quilt Guild (Gainesville, FL) Show (May, 2015). It won a second place ribbon in its category. This show never tells the winners in advance, so it is always a thrill to round the corner and see a ribbon on your quilt.

I am now entering Parallelo Pinwheels in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Spring 2015 in the Small Quilt Category. Make sure you head over to Amy’s Creative Side to view all the quilts and vote for your favs.

  1. This certainly is a happy quilt! I’ve always liked the colors, the design, and the way your straight-line quilting perfectly enhances the movement of this quilt. Really nicely done, Lora! I hope you win!
