Yellow and Black Pinwheels

Back in July, I blogged about these blocks.  If I knew how to put a link here to take you back to that post, I would!  It was a really hot and humid day, and the camera lens got fogged over - I called them my hazy pinwheel blocks.  Anyhow, these blocks have just been sitting on my sewing table.  I trimmed them down so they are all the same size (9 1/2 inches square) and sewed them together.  I decided I wanted the quilt to be a little larger, so I added the black & white polka dot border. 

I had started sewing inch and a half strips together after I had pieced those blocks.  It was sort of an experiment that really didn't work out, as it was really wonky.  I cut that down for my outer border.  It still needs pressing, and also needs to be sewn onto the quilt, but I think I'll go for it.

Awesome! You have such a gift for making these scrappy quilts. You say I want a black and yellow quilt, and then it is like magic how you put the colors together!
Isn't it nice how things that don't work out eventually do work out way better than you ever thought.

I like yellow with black and white. I like the border too.
