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.

Wow.. Mary this one turned out very nice~

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

I hope they have another one like that... but on a weekend~ So I can attend. lol
