Delectable whirligig quilt

Well, that's what I'm calling it. It's a delectable mountain quilt block with an added triangle to make a pinwheel, so It's a delectable whirligig block! I have no idea with the designer of the block actually called it.

It's midnight and I'm so tired I could fall over but I wanted to post this picture because I love this little top. I have sewed about 6 hours today completing this one. It ended up taking a lot longer than I expected; not having to cut the strips didn't save a lot of time.

It's a terrible picture because the curtain rod isn't long enough for the whole width. I had to tape the corners to the wall to keep them hanging semi-straight. Some day I'm going to have to get a design wall. Right after I get a sewing room.

Anyway, there's my latest. What do you think?

Very pretty. I like the way the blue "pops".

As always, nice job! I love the way you alternated the placement of the blue strips -- it really gives the quilt a feeling of movement!

The whirligig is just beautiful! Yep, you did a fantastic job on choosing those colors! Very striking! Don't exhaust yourself too much! Remember quilting is supposed to be fun!
