Pinwheel Beach Quilt for Dear Stella

Hi friends! I am over at Dear Stella today with a fun Pinwheel Beach Quilt Tutorial. This one is a little different because I used a terry cloth backing instead of your normal batting and backing fabric. Seaworthy is a new fabric line by Jack and Lulu for Dear Stella and it features fun nautical prints for boys and girls. The girls line really stands out with some adorable mermaids! We live near the beach in Chicago and thought it would be fun to create a beach quilt for my son to enjoy.

      Thanks Becky! The beach was fun to take pictures at but keeping up with a runaway toddler was a wee bit difficult :)

      Thank you Christine! I just love pinwheels or half square triangles for nautical inspired quilting. The fabric is just perfect and the girls line is even cuter!

    I recently made a baby blanket with flannel on top and terry cloth on the back. I really like how it turned out.
    i did have a little trouble with the terry bunching but I picked up a few tips from your Tutorial. Next time I will pre-wash the terry, tape it down and use my walking foot (I just discovered it’s virtues!)
    I’m think bath matts are in my future.

      Isn’t terry cloth fun to work with on quilts? I think it is the perfect backing for babies and kids too, washing the terry cloth before hand made a huge difference. I have tried it without washing before and it puckered quite a bit. What a great idea to make a bath mat! I am going to try one of those out as well!
