Christmas In July – Peppermint Pinwheels

Happy Monday!

After seeing so many inspiring projects in the many Christmas in July blog hops, it motivated me to finish my only Christmas PHD –  Peppermint Pinwheels.

I used my Creative Grids Scrap Crazy 6 templates to create the table runner. Together the templates create a 6 inch finished block. One of the templates is a equilateral triangle, I used the stripe fabric with this template in each block, rotating four blocks creates the pinwheel. I used green scraps for the other templates to surround the striped fabric. Twelve blocks creates a 12.5 x 36 inch table runner.

I’m so happy to have this table runner finished, and I’m happy with how it turned out, and even happier how quickly it was to put together. I created each block then used a QAYG method to finish it. I definitely will make this again to give as a gift.

Below are three projects I fell in love with during this past week Christmas in July blog hops and plan to add to my Christmas to-do list are:

  1. Michelle from Creative Blonde – Christmas Stocking for pet dog
  2. Wendy from Pieceful Thoughts – Christmas Tree Mini
  3. Missouri Star Quilt Company – Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

Linking up with Main Crush Monday with Beth from Cooking Up Quilts.

Happy Sewing & Quilting

  5. Good Morning! I love this pinwheel table runner – is there anything to hate about pinwheels?!! And I totally agree with your favorite projects. That dog Christmas stocking is just SO darn cute, as is Wendy’s mini. Happy Tuesday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. I wish all this Christmas things I am seeing this week would make me cool off. I love the template you used. I’ve been using some on my Pinwheel Roundabout QAL and they are just great. Your table runner makes me want to go get some peppermints.
