That Familiar Whir

So I'm back home, summer's come to an end and I finally had a chance to get back to my machine. Those Dilly Dally pinwheels have been on my mind for the last two months while I was away.
I definitely love the Orange & White 50-50 bar look.
As for the second one, originally I hadn't really considered using those
charm squares with the black.
Even though they are colorful, I wasn't quite sure how they'd fit in.
But then I just decided to go for it and see how it turned out.
And I think I'm not going to regret it! 
There'll only be a few here and there in the finished quilt
and now I'm pretty sure it'll be an interesting touch.

So I'm happy to be sewing again
and also looking forward to visiting blogs and seeing all
the great creations and ideas floating around out there.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
