"You've Got Mail"

Snuggle quilts have been requested by my grands in Texas (one boy/one girl).  I've always loved the quilt from "You've Got Mail" - perfect for 'my girl' and a great opportunity to action one from the list.  I worked on it last weekend (selecting fabric, cutting, sewing).  By Sunday night, I had a good start.  I should complete the last of the pinwheel blocks this weekend.  I was hoping to start putting rows together, but that was too ambitious (when factoring in spring bulb planting). 

Here's the beginning laid out on the spare bed.  At the bottom, you can see the fabric I've selected for the setting triangles and corners.  The pinwheel blocks finish at 7" (approx 10" on point).  I'm planning 7 rows of 6 pinwheels.  The quilt should finish 70" x 60".  It might be a tad big for a snuggle quilt, but it can be folded at the end of a twin bed for double-duty.


Off to finish the last of the pinwheels (15 to go!) and plan the quilt for 'my guy'.

I've always loved that quilt too!! I wish they'd put more great quilts in movies - lol. Your pinwheels look great so far - lots of good variety. I think it's a great size for a snuggle quilt.

I love the pinwheels. Not complicated; very clean looking; but stunning! And not even small blocks! :-)

Great quilt. I try to get a better view of it every time the movie is on. Is the pattern published somewhere? This is definitely a snuggle quilt pattern.
Is there a site anywhere with a running list of quilts spotted in movies? If not, there should be. Somewhere I have a little list going, but my movie watching is pretty limited, so my list is pretty short.
