    3D pinwheel quilt

    I started this the day after Christmas and had it finished ahead of time for a baby shower that was last Sunday - woo-hoo I must admit that there are times that a quilt I've made as a gift is fluffing in the dryer when it is time to be wrapping it up! After washing this one, I was a little disappointed in the pinwheels. It was my first attempt the make them 3D. I tried ironing them when the quilt was still a damp, I didn't want them to lie flat. Seems like there was nothing I could do to make them puff nicely. I rolled a scrap of batting into a tight little cone and stuck into the pinwheel when ironing, but it still looked kind of wrinkly and bunched up. I finally decided that the first time she washed it, it will look this way and I doubt that she'd ever take time to iron it. So, it has that nice antique, shabby chic look.

    BTW, the quilt was a hit, both the mommy-to-be and her mom (one of my best friends) were fight back tears.
