|May LePetite- Candy Bar Pinwheels|
Memorial Day weekend was a great time to be finishing this small quilt for LePetite! I really wanted to use fabrics from my stash on this one, especially for the border. It seemed like the perfect place to use one of those prints that I intended to use for a border someday, but didn't buy quite enough of it to use on a big quilt. The fabric I chose to use from my stash was America the Beautiful from Clothworks. All I know about it is what I can read from the selvage, so let me know if I'm wrong about that. This worked well with other fabrics from my stash since I have made a few red and blue quilts in the past few years, which of course leads to plenty of red and blue scraps. Don't get me wrong though, I did buy a few new fabrics to add to the mix!

Candy Bar Pinwheels, designed by Doug Leko from Antler Quilt designs, was fun and easy to make. The directions call for a Moda Candy Bar Bundle, but I thought it was a great one for fabrics from my stash. If you don't know who Doug is be sure to learn more about him! How fun to make a quilt designed by such a young quilt designer!
As always, be sure to stop by and see the LePetite parade at Sherri and Sinta's blogs in the next few days to see more beautiful quilts! I have already seen some wonderful versions out there! Thanks to Sherri and Sinta for taking the time to put the parade together! I'm off for a bike ride! Enjoy your evening!
