Each of the blocks on her sampler quilt has it’s own quilting design. The challenge was to come up with three very different designs for the three identical blocks. BTW- I’m calling them a modified pinwheel but I’m sure there is an official name for them. If you know the names of any of these blocks, leave it in the comments section. Thanks!

I used a different filler for the background of each pinwheel. Which one is your favorite treatment? I like the first one up there with the light brown background.

Since Eve’s quilt is a sampler I thought I’d include shots of each of the blocks and the quilting treatment I used on them. I didn’t plan these out beforehand. I just kinda went with the flow and each time and used quilter’s vinyl to lay on top of each section. Then I used a wet mark eraser to doodle on the quilt until I was happy with the design.

I put a cherry blossom in the white background of the fan and added line definition to the blades of the fan. This is such a perfect block to include in an oriental quilt, don’t you think?

These next two are almost the same block just with different values. I always love how wonderful a quilt block can look with different fabric choices. I love that!
