OMG Finishes

It has been a long while since I was here and still people keep visiting so thank you.
I have had to take a self imposed break, and am still a little weary about what I post here. A complaint was made against me about an innocent internet post made by a family member,(thankfully not the blogging world) that has led to alot of stress and unsettled times. As a blog is public reading material I will now need to be careful about what I write for awhile.
On the quilting front there has only been a little of that happening - couldn't concentrate on that but getting back into it again.
These pinwheels have become a little quilt that is having the binding sewn on today. I discovered a quick way of making pinwheels (most of you probably know this but for those who don't) at the Missouri Quilt company.
You cut your squares and place them right sides together. then sew a quarter inch seam around all sides. Line up your ruler and cut on both diagonals and voila 4 HST and no ruling lines.

The other project I have been working on is from this book which has great patterns in it for jelly rolls
I chose to make this one first and used a Balipops jelly roll I'd had for some time and Kona Ash-

You really have to concentrate on the placement of the blocks but it will look great. Just now having trouble getting a border fabric to match.
And here are some more of my African blocks-
From Melina in France
Maisie approving Kate's block from Australia and wonderfully hand stitched.
Hopefully back later with more.
We are having the most glorious winter sunshine this weekend-yesterday on the golf course and today maybe the garden Hope you are all having a great weekend.
Thanks for visiting.
