    I made this quilt for my daughter so I'm naming it "Josie" just as I named her.

    I started out cutting my fabric for a Turning 20 pattern. But I miscut and had fabric that was too narrow. I decided to turn my cutting mistake into a unique quilt.

    I took the idea of stacked coins and went crazy with it. I made pinwheels from the big 10" squares.

    The finished result is a scrappy, patchworky looking quilt that I just adore!

    Now, I just need to add borders and decide on backing.

    It measures about 60" wide x 75" long. The color is off in the 2nd photo because my hand was partially in front of the flash.

    The pinwheels

    As much of the quilt as I could fit in the frame

    Most definitely! She's just as full of character and whimsy and spirit as this quilt. She's 4 years old going on 13. She specifically asked for the kitty cat fabric in it and squeals with delight when I let her lay on the quilt on the floor.

    Josie, the namesake

    You gave me some ideas for the scrappy quilt I'm making. I could put pinwheels around the outside of my strips of 2x3" pieces. Thanks and beautiful quilt by the way.
