A New Twist

Call this a new twist, if you will, on the ever popular "klosjes" that are spooling around blogland. I have had pinwheels on the brain and they seem compatible, don't you think? 

Also, newly hung on my wall is my ancestor quilt that I showed previously here  and here. I got it back from Rosie, my quilter, and it looks terrific. You really cannot see her efforts in the photo, as she straight-line stitched around each block, and then added feathers in the squares and borders. It all complements my quilt beautifully. I love this little quilt for many reasons. The simplicity of the blocks, the family names and the sentimental stitching around the border. It all makes me happy!
P.S. The Ancestor Quilt was designed by Leslie Ison and Norma Whaley of Salt Lake City, Utah. I bought the pattern at The Corn Wagon quilt shop, 801- 491-3551.

"Pinwheels on the brain" . . . does that mean your thoughts are spinning? LOL

This is such a unique quilt! I haven't seen anything quite like this and I'm loving it!

I went to your web site to see if you had the pattern for the "klosjes" (excuse the spelling) quilt. Is this an original? Love it and would love to make one for my sewing room as I think it looks like spools! Any information would be appreciated.

Yes, a tutorial or pattern would be great for the klosjes quilt or just the size of the pinwheel blocks! Love it. Thanks. Your ancestor quilt is just wonderful - what a great tribute!!

The ancestor quilt turned out very well. I know that you will have many memories to mull over when you look at the quilt.
The pinwheels do go well with the spool blocks. You have a very good creative mind.
