Goodness me how time flies. I have been meaning to write this for a couple of days but somehow have never found the time. My littlest is testing her boundaries every way she can and goodness me that is tiring. I have also been working feverishly on some rows for the Row Robin Swap I am in. To be honest I think I might be losing my sewing mojo! Too much in too little time. I might just have to step away from the sewing machine for a little while!
Anyway whilst it is still somewhat fresh in my mind the second theme for May`s STUD swap was "Twisted Traditional". After umming and ahhing for quite a while I decided to try and make a modern pinwheel. To twist the original I pieced each of the triangles making up the pinwheel. I was going to use different prints and go for an eye spy type pinwheel but I thought that might look a bit of a mess. The solids turned out very striking and I think also make it easier to determine the pinwheel shape despite the piecing. To further twist the original I made all the triangles different sizes and shapes.
