    How do you do the circular pinwheely sort of block? I've seen it before and thought it was too complicated, but yours look so nice I think I'd give it a try.

    Thanks!

    The 3 layer pinwheel is a 6" block out of a book titled Rotary magic by Nancy Johnson-Srebro. She calls them poseys and they're not that hard to make, which is good for me. The pink and orange polka dots were so similar in tone they don't contrast well.

    I'm thinking that after you were so creative and the finished project is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind quilt that you'll be doing more of this and less making quilts from patterns. And you have the 6" blocks to get you started . . . . .

    I just love mistake quilts! I've made a few of my own and they make you stretch a bit - which is a good thing. Yours is a thing of beauty - lucky baby!

    Fay,
    I see a quilter with lots of talent! Follow a pattern if you wish, but don't give up on your own ideas! That's part of being creative! Make the quilt "your own".

    You took lemons, added water and sugar and made some great lemonade! Great job.

    It turned out beautiful after all. I just a pink and brown paisley with polka dots done without a pattern. I actually enjoyed the challenge. With the messed up blocks I made a pillow case. Good job.

    Your quilt is so cute and it doesn't show that you had difficulties and no pattern. You were very creative!

    It's beautiful! The baby, as it grows, will love and be stimulated by the colors and the figures, especially in that center panel. Great job!
