Old Glory Itty Bitty Pinwheel Quilt

July 23, 2012


 In keeping with the mini theme, here is my next little morsel of yummy goodness, Old Glory Itty Bitty.  :-)
Again, this one stands up too, as if it has legs.
I believe it is around 10" square.  Itty Bitty is right!  This is a super cool little quilt to make!! 
It is so fun to see the transformation because it started out looking like this.  I really didn't want to cut it up.  I loved it just like this!!  I used 3 Candy packs of Old Glory (my new favorite fabric) and a little yardage from Seasonal Little Gatherings, both from Primitive Gatherings for Moda.  I have plenty of little squares left over for something else. :-)  After using the Itty Bitty Primitive Pinwheel Template, the design comes together easily, like butter. :-)  The pattern/fabric layout is included with the template here.

It is amazing!  Could even stand up on its own before quilting! LOL!  I also quilted this on my longarm.  It was quite the sight too!!  LOL!!  It took all of 5 minutes.  A little stitch in the ditch and meandering.  Batting is Hobbs 80/20.  Pattern called for a single fold binding, which I DID do.  I never use binding clips, but they were incredibly helpful in this case!
Until I have a few more minis completed (for my wall of smalls), I will decorate with them.
Fits in with all my patriotic decor!  The heart bowl fillers are another wonderful creation from Denise of KKL Primitives.  She is so creative!!
I went hunting for treasures again in my stash (basement storage) and came up with this antique library chair.  It is one of those chairs that flips over and becomes a ladder.  Another treasure from my grandma.  It used to have green paint.  Scott started refinishing it years ago, but never finished.  I am so glad too.  I love how it looks now!!  Primitive and worn.  Perfect!!  I just cleaned it up.  Above is a new pineapple sign.
Mary of The Gettysburg Mercantile did a beautiful job.  Mary makes and sells gorgeous primitive goods!!!!  Very talented!

Thank you for all the comments on Little Red!  I hope some of you have also caught the mini bug!!

  5. You know I've caught the bug, Linda! The only cure for it is to keep sewing - lolol! This one is so adorable and I had no idea there was a mini pinwheel tool!
    Cheers!

  6. The sheep is what caught my eye. The quilt, the sheep, the cabinet, etc. all go together well to make a great patriotic display.
