Day 120 of May, Week 67 of year 39 of House Arrest.. But projects are moving along very nicely. Got bored with the strips of FG, so moved on to this, using a Hawaiia shirt I'd bought and cut into fabric.  Used FG that all matched. Then did this layout

I think I'll be putting one border on, maybe two, depending on how I feel when I look at it.  I have a couple more shirts but not sure I have plenty of matching FG.. Guess I could pick a color and mix those up.  One of the remaining shirts has muted blues, tans and browns.  Time will tell.

Nicely done!  It feels good to get those projects done.  :-)

Love your hawaiian shirt quilt, makes me want to go to a tropical beach destination!

I got so much done today.

I did some exercise today for 30 min...........this might not sound like a big deal but before "shelter in place" I was going to the gym three days a week and did a 1 1/2 hour pretty intensive workout. I have not exercised since we came to New Mexico so this is great...........just need to make it a habit again now.

I did a pretty deep clean of the kitchen.........not perfect but not bad.

We finally got our big freezer in the garage going again..............shut it down 4 years ago and it also got a deep clean.

AND...............finally to the quilting for today.................I made 8 huge half square triangle blocks which will make two 30 inch giant pinwheels for the back of the t-shit quilt I finished piecing a couple of weeks ago. I did not have enough fabric for the backing but found a really large piece and these pinwheels will be perfect to stretch that fabric to make it enough and I do love pieced backings. Will continue piecing the back tomorrow.

I absolutely love your color wheel!  Such beautiful color choices.  A color wheel has been on my bucket list too.  I just struggle with choosing colors.

I sure love the colors in your pretty block.  Looking forward to see how you finish it up.

Glad your freezer started working after setting for 4 years.  we had a freezer once that set unplugged for more that 4 years and it didn't work when we started it back up.

Thanks Lynne, I used what I had, are the colors perfect choices? Some are really a far reach but it all works together. It was a really fast project when you look at the size and the amount of time it took to put together. If you really dedicated the time I think you could make this top in one day. I do want to make more carpenter wheels as I really just love the wow impact of that giant star shape in vibrant colors.
