Just one for me.

This was a really easy block and I love the graphic appeal of the jewel tones on black. But I only had time for one this month. (Please excuse the poor picture, my iPhone was not cooperating.)


I’ve been busy with a couple of other quilts. I just finished this baby quilt for a friend at work who has just adopted a little girl. But my friend hates pink, so I went with a more modern palate.


My latest project will be a Christmas gift for my sister-in-law who collects chickens. I hope I can get it done in time!


So you can see why I only had time for one X this month! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!


  1. Lovely quilt Andrew, I am pretty sure it will be cherished for years to come! What pattern is it? I am definitely crushing on that Rooster! Is it Paper piecing?

    • Thank you! The quilt pattern is called “Wonky Pinwheel”. I followed this tutorial: Wonky Pinwheel. The rooster is a pattern by Ann Shaw called “Gallus Gallus”. I purchased the pattern here: Fiddlesticks Quilt Shop. I assumed when I ordered the rooster pattern that I would be paper foundation piecing. But the instructions use the “Ruth B. McDowell Method” of piecing. The process is sort of a combination of paper foundation piecing and English paper piecing. It has been a learning experience!

  2. Love your mod baby quilt & the chicken is great!

    • Thank you!
