    I finished this lap quilt top today and when I studied it I felt disappointment. I can't put my finger on it -

    I wanted to convey sunshine and flowers. I used a 9.5 in. pinwheel to show the floral fabric off, but maybe I cut it up too much.

    Let me know what you think. I value your opinions.

    PINWHEEL QUILT TOP. I USED 21 FAT QUARTERS TO MAKE IT.

    It's very pretty. Looks to me like a pond on a sunny day, surrounded by flowers.

    I think it is a georious quilt. Instead of sunshine and flowers it reminds me of a lake with a beach and lots of flowers and greenery all around.
    Just my opinion but I think it is great and you did a fabulous job!

    I totally agree ... the only thing that would make it better is if it was mine ;)

    I think it's beautiful!

    I love the way that blue really POPs out!! Looks great!
    I love the way you ladies put 'ok this really looks like crap' and then I scroll down expecting to see something horrible (like I might make) and I ALWAYS see something beautiful!!

    I think its pretty too. If you are wanting more flower to show, maybe add another border of your flower fabric.

    Very Nice. happy Thanksgiving
