    Everything about this quilt is because of this board. I had NEVER purchased fabric without a specific purpose in mind until I met all of you. After hanging out here for awhile, it didn't see like such a sin. One day I was at Joann's and all of those pretty pin dots started wanting to go home with me. Somehow after they got here, they decided to become pinwheels.

    Secondly, I started this before Christmas and should've had it done ages ago but you guys came up with the farm block swap and I couldn't quit making blocks for it. I still wish I had more blocks coming to me!!

    The quilting is bad, but the piecing is pretty good and I can live with that. The quilting thing will get better over time I suppose.
    The quilt is kind of long and skinny like my husband. He doesn't demand manly colors, but he does like his toes covered when he's on the couch.

    good job. I think it looks great, and as long as he likes it, you did very good. I think I am overly critical, and as long as the one I quilt for likes it, I have done good.

    Love it, love it, LOVE IT!

    Pinwheel is my favorite block because they seem so free flowing.

    Please send it my way if hubby doesn't like it! :D

    Great job - the colors are so cheerful. Your DH is one lucky guy to get a quilt like that.
