I finished Dulcinea.
Once I had all those pinwheels spinning in the center of my quilt, I had no choice but to surround those blocks with geese, to keep them spinning. My first inclination was to make the center geese units using medium toned pieces and the sky unit using dark toned pieces. Then I remembered my Toulouse quilt, and how the geese in that project were totally scrappy and how I loved that about that quilt, so that's what I did for Dulcinea. I figure it's OK to steal the border from one pattern to add to another, since both patterns are by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 106 - Dulcinea.
The pattern is Dulcinea by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
The fabric is American Banner Rose and Prairie Paisley II by Minick & Simpson for Moda.
It finished at 49" x 49"
It has approximately 598 pieces.
Thanks for all the great comments regarding those sticks on the pinwheel blocks. The secondary pattern was pure luck, but I liked how it turned out. The strips for the sticks were cut 3/4" wide, to finish at 1/4". My first attempt had them finishing at 1/2", but that was too wide.
So the parade is Monday, and this is one speedy pattern, you still have plenty of time to piece yours.
Thanks Sinta and Sherri for hosting this sew-along, I can hardly wait to see all the other Dulcinea quilts and what's up next!
