Friends with Benefits

A number of years ago, 10 women decided to make pin wheel quilts with polk-a-dot fabrics. The group gathered with everyone bringing their stash of dots. Ten unique dots were selected for each participant. We were to make 10 pinwheels from each fabric with the same ecru background. On sharing day, each gal handed off a packet of 10 pinwheels to the other gals in the group. We each then had 100 dotted pinwheels. Mine sat on the shelf for a few years until the time was right. That was 2013.

I played with the squares until I found something I liked. This is the result.

I rather like it and aptly named it Friends with Benefits.

Elaine, this is fabulous! There must be something about 2013, as I have been dealing with decades old quilt projects myself (I know because I have not quilted in at least 10 years). Congratulations!

Jeri, that has been my year as well. After working full time on the wind turbine series, I was ready for some good old fashion quilt projects. I've finished several. I always think they are simple and straight forward but in the end, they require a lot of thought as well.
