Kaleidoscope Pinwheel Wall Hanging

It takes me a while to complete projects. Last year the local library had a free quilting class. We learned how to make a kaleidoscope quilt. I think they are also call stack and whack quilts. I used some of my blocks to make a wall hanging.



The border below shows my main fabric. To make the pinwheels we had to stack 8 pieces of identical fabric in a pile. We then cut the fabric stack into 8 triangles. Each set of triangles was made into a pinwheel.



Mary Lou from my quilt group did a gorgeous job quilting my wall hanging. She used the holly in the fabric as one of her quilting designs and worked the patterns around the pin wheels. Very impressive job.




I think that I could hang the wall hanging backwards because the quilting on the back is beautiful.

That was the one we did at the library? Looked like the type of fabric you had that day.
