Step 3 of the Good Fortune Mystery Quilt

I had one of the weekends where we didn’t have a ton planned, which is so glorious because I can work on whatever was needed. And of course, what was needed was some quilting! I filmed a couple short tutorial/tips videos for the channel, but was mostly excited to finish up step 2 of the Good Fortune mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter, and got step 3 properly wrangled as well.

Paul brought us Pinwheels in the Garden for row 2 with a mix of piecing and applique techniques.  I stuck to some florals and a mix of prints for the pinwheels to go with my...
