{Post #976} Vintage Block Baby Quilt

I had a post about this quilt over on my secret projects blog, but I don't think the mother of the baby reads my blog.  So I am going to update it here.

About 6 weeks ago I bought a set of these pinwheel blocks.  There were 42 of them.  None of them were the same sizes.  So I took one apart and made correct seam allowances, etc.  Took too much time.  I just cut them all down to 6-1/2" square, regardless of lost points.  My sewing-est daughter saw them on my design wall and did not notice the chopped off points until I pointed it out.  

Here are the pics.  I had to add some "muslin" to this block because the seam allowance was ripping:

I don't think it will be noticeable after quilting and washing.

Here are some other pictures showing the "lovely" fabrics used and my choice of border fabric:

"Something" happens between the time that you pick up "lovely" pieces until the time that you finish your "truly beautiful" projects. It's something in your touch, Joan, that has transforming powers!!
If no one adds "Here Here" to this, it's because they haven't yet read this comment!

What a great save. So what if you lost some points, it looks great.
