I gave away the first Extra Scrappy Pinwheels quilt after reading this post, by Diane at Dew Quilting. There wasn't enough time right then to make a second quilt, and I had plenty of red triangles, so I told myself that I'd make my own quilt later.
And I did get all of the red and white triangles assembled into pinwheels and borders before I realized that I hadn't set aside enough white border strips and had probably used up the rest of that white fabric in other projects.
Last week, I found what was left of the white mystery thing. When I bought it at an estate sale, I thought it was folded white muslin. When I got it home, the white muslin turned out to be an unfinished garment. I'm guessing it was a baptism robe (and I don't feel sacrilegious for using it, because is was obviously never finished and used).
There was more than enough for the border strips I needed, but now that I've got the top done, I have no clue where I put my backing fabric. Otherwise the whole quilt would be done by now. And thank goodness it isn't, because I just proofread this post and saw that one of my borders is going the wrong way!
There's a free tutorial for Extra Scrappy Pinwheels. I did a slightly different outer border for the second one, but it uses the same number of triangles. To check out more design walls, visit Judy at Patchwork Times.
