More Pinwheels

Did a few more pinswheels on my husband's quilt. Thinking I might abandon this and do something in red, white and blue for the holidays...this is why I have so many UFOs. Why can't I stay focused?
My bad. 

Pinwheels for Pop

Okay, I know I wouldn't start another new project, but I just couldn't help myself. I saw this quilt in Quick Quilts magazine and I loved the colors--something I decided would suit my husband. I bit the bullet and ordered the kit and the backing from the Fat Quarter Shop. I can't wait to do all those pinwheels--not. So, I bought the die for the Accuquilt GO! that was needed and I made one (then three). The first was a bit wonky, so I have decided to use a sheet of paper before each cut and cut only one block at a time. I'm loving not having to cut the dog ears or square them up. Cutting this quilt will be a breeze, but I'm worried a bit about cutting the sashing and trying very hard to keep those stripes straight. We'll see. 
Anyway, I'm thrilled to have a manly-ish quilt to work with and the red plaid backing will seal the deal. My husband's birthday is Sunday, but that's not going to happen and Father's Day is coming up, but it won't happen…

Sensory Blanket

I'm making this sensory blanket for my grandson and now I'm going to fill all the blocks with poly-pellets!  Lots of long seams.
