Piccadily Dutch Pinwheel

Life has been super crazy for me lately. My baby started walking last week and all I have wanted to do is cry. I just can't believe how much she has grown. My five year old was super sweet and said, "Mommy I'll always be your baby".  I just melted. Then I realized it doesn't matter how old they get, they will always be my babies. Okay enough with the sappy mommy stuff. I bought some new fabric from Joann's, Piccadily by Denyse Schmidt.

I had seen this quilt, by Crazy Mom Quilts, and knew I had to take a trip to Joann's. To me it's sort of a odd combo of fabrics, and I love that. They are just so pretty! I couldn't wait to cut into them! It took me a couple of days, but I finally decided to make some Dutch Pinwheel blocks.  I really love this block! It's just simply beautiful.

I used Kona white and some grey crosshatch has background fabric. I wasn't sure how the grey would look, but I decided just to go for it. And I love it! Can't wait to start making some more!


  1. I have stayed out of Joanns for months, and that stack may push me back in! I love this block, it was one from my very first learn to quilt sampler class, so it has fond memories for me. Thanks for linking up while I hosted Anything Goes Mondays!

  2. I've been seeing this block a lot recently! I love your version, the grey is gorgeous

  3. I think this block is great and I am such a huge fan of the cross hatched fabric! What a lovely texture it adds to the over all look! I bet this is going to be just beautiful :)

  4. Oh my! These two blocks are gorgeous! Can't wait to see more of them! What a great fabric stack. And yes, it is precious to see your little ones growing up, bit by bit. Treasure these days!

  5. ooh! yummy fabrics, and love them in the Dutch pinwheels!

    Thanks so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

  6. Those blocks are beautiful! Pinwheels have always been my favourites, so I may have to give these a go sometime soon.
