    Here's my latest baby quilt. I sewed from 10:00 last night until 3:00 this morning to get the top done (baby is due October 31 and is a girl). I only had to do the frog stitch 3 times (luckily I caught the misplaced square early on and only had to undo 4" each time). Now the question is: to border or not to border. I'd appreciate your input. Thanx.

    Very nice. I might put a border on it depending on how big it is. Either way great job! :thumbup:

    Very pretty. And you kept it all together even working all night (that's usually when I screw up LOL). I would put a narrow border of the pinwheel fabric and then a larger border (same size as blocks) of one of the block colors. all your colors are lovely. Great job!

    That is what I would do. It's such a pretty quilt and I think borders would finish it off nicely.

    I found the 3-D pinwheel on the tutorials on this site and the rest I just threw together and then rearranged the blocks until I found just the right mix. It was fun to put together and I'd do another one in a heart beat.
