This is block 6 in Susan’s stars and pinwheels quilt-along, called Pinwheel 7. Colors are distorted in the picture – fabrics are white and dark green polka dot.
I’m using the blocks in this series to make a different project each month rather than saving them for a big quilt. This month, I decided to replace a 30-year-old mixer cover for my 30-year-old Kitchen Aid mixer.
My daughter had brought the cover back from a trip to Ireland and it’s still in good shape, but it’s time for a different look for that part of the kitchen counter.
I used the old cover as a three-part pattern (center and two sides). I reduced the block size to 7 inches finished and used four of them plus two end pieces to make the center of the cover.
All I needed was a lining and some binding around the bottom to complete a new, very different cover for the old Kitchen Aid.
