Pinwheel pillow for the youngest niece

I am scandalously late with sending birthday presents to two of my nieces in Switzerland. I have no idea why these special dates slipped my mind, but they did. For some time I have been wanting to make cushions to compliment the quilts I made for them last Summer.

This was made for the youngest, who has quite the colorful yet determined sort of personality. Since there are pinwheels in the quilt, it was only natural to chose a pinwheel cushion. However, I did not want to overdo it, so I chose a slightly different version with this Pinwheel block from Quilter's Cache (a lovely site for blocks). It will be on a grey background, like the original quilt.

I will try to get it in the post by Sunday, which is the first weekday of the week in this part of the world.

Have a wonderful day!



  1. I love your comments about how this lovely quilt matches your niece's personality. And I've been getting patterns from Quilters Cache for years. I agree with you it's a wonderful site.

    1. Hello Roxanne and thanks for following my blog! Indeed it is wonderful when there are people who so generously share with others as on the said site.
      Take care
