SecondHand Rows

After finishing my Sunny Skies pattern from the Missouri Star Quilt Company I had enough half square triangles & 16 patch blocks leftover to make this quilt.  It is my own design & I used all of the leftover fabrics from my "Betty Dear" quilt.  I ended up with one lonely 16 patch block left so I just put it into the backing.  What can I say - it's just so me!

The quilt is machine quilted with what I call "Fractured Stars".  I used red thread on the front & the back.  Named the quilt "SecondHand Rows".  (A parody of Second Hand Rose.)  The pinwheel blocks have added borders to make the block the same size as the 16 patch blocks.  It was alot of fun.  I love the quilt.
