    I just finished piecing 20 pinwheels for my neighbor's baby blanket. I made it from a Fandango charm pack (40 charms) paired with 40 squares of an ivory. Thoughts on whether I should leave them touching or put in a skinny inside border?

    I think you will get more of a pinwheel effect if you use sashing between the blocks. It will be pretty either way.

    Nice and fresh looking. Maybe a small border on the edge.

    To be honest the only reason I use sashing with a pinwheel is to avoid having to line up all those seams. Just a personal preference for me. Now having said that! I think yours looks great just like it is. Very beautiful.

    I agree with using sashing between the blocks. I love the line of fabric you used. Very pretty!! :)

    Another vote for a border instead of sashing. Pretty quilt.

    Beautiful. Sashing would make it pop.

    I agree, would look great with sashing in between the pinwheels, Your colors are very pretty together and you did a great job putting those pinwheels together.
