Pinwheel Block – Quilted

After drawing out several designs on the block this was the only one I felt sort of good about so I decided to go for it.  I’m keeping the quilt for myself so if I mess up I’m the one that has to live with it.  🙂 I do like the design so far though.

(Excuse the bad lighting, this was taken in my sewing room at night)

I’ve done a few others.  The quilting seems to be going okay.  I’ve done all of it on my Singer 201-2.  After figuring out the top thread tension issue it goes pretty smoothly.  I need a new cone thread holder though, the one I have is seriously lacking and is giving me issues.  Suggestions welcome!

I hope to have it done soon so I can start working on the border and sew on the binding.  I want to do some sort of leaf pattern for the border.

  2. I like the way your quilting is making the quilt look. Nice job! As far as the cone holder goes, I use my serger machine (which sits adjacent to my sewing machine) and then I thread it through my sewing machine. A cone holder does not have to be attached to the sewing machine. Good luck!
