Wild Thing Pattern

This has got to be my new favorite pattern. I have been looking at it for some time and decided to give it a try. It is so easy and fast. I have spent the last two days making a couple of baby quilts from the pattern. For the first quilt, I used mostly fabrics from My Little Pupply line by Blue Hill Fabrics. The red is from OZ by Moda and the green is from Playful Pups by Benartex.
I used four different prints for the pinwheels. I cut a 5 inch strip and was able to get all the blocks from the four different strips. Inner border was cut 2 inches and the outer border was cut 4-1/2 inches.

The second quilt is made from a layer cake by Moda. The line is by Bunny Hill Designs. I cut the 10 inch squres down to 5 inches. I then cut 2-1/2 inch strips by 8-1/2 inches for the outer borders.

A closer look at the blocks.

The quilt ended up using only about half of the layer cake, so I will spend the next few days coming up with another quilt to use up my scraps unless I decide to piece them for the backing.
