    Pinwheels or no pinwheels.... that is the question

    I wanted to make this panel just a little bit bigger for a good sized baby quilt. I have a little great niece who is coming in August and since her Grandpa (my brother) just died, I wanted to make something a little extra special for her. I made these pinwheels to go around the outer edges as a border. See what you think, will they work? Or should I go back to just a plain solid color?

    Love the pinwheels - I see pink binding ------------see what the experts suggest. Is she old enough for some bling?? Maybe some jewels on the animals saddles? She will love however you do it.

    Yes, add the pinwheels. Makes it very personal, just for her.

    I too love the pinwheels and it suggest spinning to me which seems appropriate for the carousel theme. Love it.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    I think the pinwheels are great! Such a cute panel, too!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
