I had lots of leftover fabric from other patriotic quilts I had made as well as all these red and white half square triangles. So I started making stars and this is the quilt I ended up with. I really liked how it turned out and knew I wanted it to go to someone I knew. My dear friend Helen's husband is a retired Marine and I felt this quilt would be perfect for him and I was right, he was overwhelmed.

I have been on a mission to use up my scraps. Have made one blue and white, one red and white and One using left over juvenile fabrics. Now I am on to my purple. OK, let me explain. I made a purple quilt for my granddaughter 8 years ago and I inherited a bunch of purple. I got it all cut out and was STILL left with a pile. What to do, what to do. Ah Ha, a pieced back. Used up every bit to that purple and I like it.

I am finally back sewing. My leg has been giving me fits and the little time I could work I used for Susan's quilt on the long arm. I am making another pinwheel quilt for my daughter in law Shelly. Using up bits of Betty's fabric and some fabric I was given by my cousin. I am a bit of a disorganized sewer. I do a little cutting, a bit of sewing, some pressing and sew on. It feels good to be back at the machine.
Now that I have discovered This method , I like the second method, I can make pinwheels like a pro!!!

I am having a mild flared of my CRPS so am not able to spend much time at my sewing machine or long arm. Thank goodness I found inklingo, now I have plenty of hand work to do while I am grounded to my chair. Being somewhat anal I found I need to have stations for my hexagons.
This kit the beginning stage:
