    Finished DGG's Quilt Today :-)

    I needed a quilt for a little girl around 5 or 6 years old and didn't know where to start. This little girl is a step-great granddaughter & I haven't met her yet, but am looking forward to it! :-) I got the inspiration to try pinwheels because I have such troubles with bias edges & wanted some practice. I made the pinwheels, put a yellow frame around them, sashed them with white. Then I decided to add some applique flowers at the cross-roads with leaves like the flowers in the lighter blades. I found some feather cornices which I FM'd in the corners of each of the yellow frame corners. I stenciled leaves & vines through the sashing & around the border, then did some paint for stamens & the antennae for the butterflies.
