A change of pace...

I spent yesterday inside. It's unusually cold for March here in NC.  We even had a few snow flurries in the air.  Not typical March weather for us.  I'm glad to see the extended forecast has us going up into the 60's for next week.  

Back to my inside story.

I'm going to be a Grandmother any day now. Our daughter is having a baby girl and we couldn't be more excited!  To the point... I was in one of the local quilt shops a few weeks back and saw a really cute Moda charm pack.  Perfect colors that match the color scheme our daughter had done in the nursery.  I snatched it up and came home to figure out how I was going to use it.  I did some research on baby quilts (Google is awesome). I decided I really liked the looks of the pinwheel quilts.  Again, google is awesome, I found a youtube video on how to make pinwheel blocks.  Amazingly simple. 
Needless to say I pinwheeled away yesterday.  Did I tell you I used to sew. 

Lily's quilt

My very first quilt that I quilted for our daughter circa 1984

And yes, I will eventually hook a rug for her.  That's going to take a bit more thought.
