#10 in 10 in 10 done!! 16 patch and Pinwheels

# 16 patch and pinwheels

16 Patch and Pinwheels






























I made a mistake earlier in calling another quilt by this name. This was made from scraps and it is one of my favorite quilts.  It's going to go on one of my guest room beds. I used Mary's pattern for this one.

and the backing......not overly exciting...

and that, my friends, concludes my self imposed challenge of finishing 10 quilts in 10 days!  The quilt tops were all completed and 4 out of 10 backings were done and several of the bindings were cut. But I still had to create backings for 6 quilts and about 4 binding sets.  They were all quilted on my long arm...Khloe.  I used a pantograph for two and free hand quilted all the rest. 

I'll post pictures of my Quilt Show this weekend.  And after all my worrying that I wouldn't have enough (which prompted me to do this little challenge)...I'll have about 117 quilts in the show.  My goal every year is to have at least 100.  I would have hit that without these quilts. But NO problem, they are NOW done and some of them were WAAAYY overdue!

Thanks for following along in my little challenge.  Maybe I should do more challenges...sure gets things done!  wanna join me?
