Candy Bar Pinwheels

old fabrics. some Yukata. and a Bella solid in grey.
just enough handstitching. planned to matchy-match the thread. but decided on a red i already had. and i very much like it better. layereed with a thrifted receiving blanket. so it lays perfectly flat.just 3 blocks. actual pattern has 6 with a border. for me this was just right. pattern measures 26 in. x 34 in. my trimmed down version measures 8-3/8 in. x 24 in.this is Candy Bar Pinwheels. a pattern by Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Design which you can find in the Moda Bake Shop. Sinta Renee of Pink Pincushion and Sherri of A Quilting Life are hosting Le Petite - a year of small projects.
