I completed this entirely on my home sewing machine. It is queen/king size. The quilting and the binding were also done on my home sewing machine. I enjoy doing the entire process. It  was funny to have a running joke with one of my quilting buddies who would check on me from time to time to make sure all of my blocks were spinning in the right direction.

This is wonderful.  Was it difficult quilting this on your home machine?  I have yet to try that other than just straight quilting on smaller project.  You should be very proud of this.

I love pinwheel quilts, but sometimes it is mind boggling to keep them all spinning the right direction.

Great job!  I haven't made anything that size.  I made a twin size flannel quilt and quilted on my home machine.  Once I was done swearing and sweating, I decided when I make my queen sized quilt for my bed (after Christmas at the very earliest) I will be sending that sucker OUT to be quilted!  You must have the patience of a saint!

Love the 1930's prints!  Seeing this makes me wish that I would have my pinwheel quilt completed.  Well maybe one of these days I'll get my wish.

Great quilt.  I'm with Green monster --- Anything bigger than a baby / lap quilt is sent out.  I don't have the patience to fight with anything large on my DSM.  You did a wonderful job.

I've always loved 1930's fabrics and quilts.  Your pinwheel quilt is fabulous!

What a wonderful scrap quilt!  Was it a published pattern?

Could you tell me where you found the pattern?  I might want to make one someday.

This was a pattern that was free from Hancock Fabrics. Pinwheels of Yesteryear using Feed Sack Fabrics, February 2005.

The original size was 50 x 64. I knew I wanted to make it for my queen size bed, so I drafted the pattern using EQ5. I made it approx. 91 x 105 inches. It was fun to make even though you had to make sure the pinwheels were all spinning in the right direction. I love using EQ7 to make my patterns larger, especially the fact that I can scan in my fabrics and use their extensive fabric library.

Thanks for all the comments. I am working on now a quilt in red, black and white, a block of the month Christmas quilt that will be completed next year and some Christmas quilt gifts that will be lap size in log cabin style using wild animal skin fabrics. This will be very interesting once completed.
