Wishes quilt along

The Wishes Quilt along started at the Fat Quarter Shop last week. I was going to buy some white on white as we need 5 yards but looking in my stash I may have enough of my favourite Moda white on white to make the blocks and some of the sashing. Also there was only one WOW in my LQS's sale. I did buy 1.6 metres of a neutral backing and a reel of thread.
I followed the instructions diligently. However I changed the pressing for the final seams and did the spinning of the seams where you unpick a few stitches above the last seam line on both sides and press the seams in the same direction. I think this technique eliminates a little bulk
I soon realised that picking the stripe and solid in the red and the pink wasn't a good idea but having cut them out, I decided to go with it.

I love everything you have been up to! Those little pinwheels are so exciting to see in the seam!
