Cold Nights, Warm Quilt

What better project for the cold winter than a nice warm quilt? I've long admired a quilt that is frequently seen on my favorite TV sit com, As Time Goes By. So here is the beginning of my version of that lovely PinWheel pattern quilt.

The blocks are not pieced together yet -- just laying there -- more blocks to finish before deciding the final layout.

The top is moving along nicely -- I'm amazed since so far all of it is hand pieced.

Here's how it looks as of Monday, Jan. 11, 2010

Just two more blocks to finish -- they will be the same as the one in the lower left corner -- yellow batik -- they go in the two empty spaces near the top.

As Time Goes By is one of my favorites too, and now I'll have to keep my eyes open for the quilt. Looking forward to seeing yours as it progresses.

Love your Picasso quote!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your kind comments. The pinwheel is simple and yet I never tire of it. I love the colours, the contrast between light and dark and the way you've organized the blocks. I look forward to seeing the completed project.
