The pinwheel block on the left can only be made with 16 half square triangles, but it was tempting to make the one on the right by substituting Flying Geese like this:

Our guild is making Adult Clothing protectors as our charity project this Christmas. Basically they are adult bibs. When my father developed Parkinson's disease, his shaky hands could make it hard to keep food from slipping off the fork or spoon and so I know firsthand how handy it was to have something to keep his clothes clean at mealtimes. This weekend I bought some fun, yet manly, fabrics and got them cut out and ready to sew into protectors.
Our guild is also having a fun challenge this year, which is to use a magazine photo as inspiration for a quilt. I found a great page for my inspiration and spent the greater part of my sewing this weekend making the quilt top. Can't share a photo of it yet, but here are the fabrics I was working with:
Seems our quilt guild is keeping us busy with sewing this year!
