Bloggers Quilt Festival

I had a hard time deciding what quilt to "feature" for the Bloggers Quilt Festival. Kinda like when I go to a restaurant. I usually end up having the same thing because I can't make up my mind! LOL . True story. Ask my husband. Yeah, while everyone else is lookin at the menu and chit chatting, I'm over in the corner in deep concentration, and then end up ordering the same dang thing.

Anyways. I did the same thing trying to decide which quilt to share. And I ended up choosing probably my favorite.Pinwheels and Prairie Points. A tutorial I did for the Moda Bake Shop. I gained inspiration for this quilt from many other quilts, and I am hooked on Prairie Points at the moment, and love how they accented this quilt. I am also extremely flattered at the emails I am still receiving from quilters and bloggers who have made this quilt. I think that is the ultimate reward after you design something and put it out there for everyone to see. To know that people like it as much as you do and take the time to make it, is a good feeling. So I thought I'd share a few of the Pinwheel and Prairie Point quilts that have been made by others. CLICK ON THE PHOTOS to see who they are made by. You can see more Pinwheel and Prairie Point quilts in my Flickr Group HERE. Oh! And PLEASE if you have made something from one of my tutorials, I would love to see it. So be sure to upload it over at the group! Hope you all are havin a Pleasant day! ooxx`jodi

Oh, Jodi, I'm so glad that you chose a pinwheel quilt to showcase........and what a little JEWEL it is !

I love pinwheels anyway, but this little treasure just sparkles.
God Bless you for sharing your talents with others who no doubt want to copy this one !

Carol said...

i LOVE this quilt. This is one of my faves! I have plans to make one in the future.
I know what you mean about having to choose a quilt to feature, and yes I always get the same thing at a restaurant too.

That little quilt sparkles and spins! What a great design and love the prairie points--a technique I've always wanted to try. Thanks for sharing.

Such a sweet quilt! I love prairie points too.

Hello Jodi!
Your quilt is just so precious. I look at it often and hope to create one as well. :o) I currently have a stack of squares cut for a pinwheel quilt, however I know I will need to add sashing around it to make it larger. :o)
I laughed when I read how you order your meals ... I am the exact same way! :o) One day I will just let my husband order and simply say, "Surprise me." :o) Talk about living on the wild side huh?!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

The pinwheel is one of my favorite quilts, especially the one you have in your banner which is the first one you posted here. Not sure what there is about them but the white background really makes them stand out. Love them.I must make one soon.

I didn't realise this was your pattern! ANother lady listed her favourite quilt on the festival as one made from this pattern, it's a green one. My comment to her - pinwheels & prairie points, impossible to go wrong with that combination! I've been trying to figure out how to do prairie points in an appelaing way on a simple square patchwork quilt for my kiddo, when I saw the other lady's post the light went on. So thank-you for the inspriation!

Your Pinwheel with Prairie Points is a classic Jodi and it will be made by many for years to come so it is the perfect choice for the Quilt Festival!
