    3D pinwheel quilt

    I started this the day after Christmas and had it finished ahead of time for a baby shower that was last Sunday - woo-hoo I must admit that there are times that a quilt I've made as a gift is fluffing in the dryer when it is time to be wrapping it up! After washing this one, I was a little disappointed in the pinwheels. It was my first attempt the make them 3D. I tried ironing them when the quilt was still a damp, I didn't want them to lie flat. Seems like there was nothing I could do to make them puff nicely. I rolled a scrap of batting into a tight little cone and stuck into the pinwheel when ironing, but it still looked kind of wrinkly and bunched up. I finally decided that the first time she washed it, it will look this way and I doubt that she'd ever take time to iron it. So, it has that nice antique, shabby chic look.

    BTW, the quilt was a hit, both the mommy-to-be and her mom (one of my best friends) were fight back tears.

    Thanks for all of your compliments! I used: Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics charm pack, along with an aqua print from the Bliss line. I wish I could do a better job with my pictures. I quilted swirly-curly-Qs at each pin wheel blade, on each red square I quilted a cinnamon bun (not sure what else to call it), then lots of loopy loops in the green sashing and meandering on the outside boarder, with big flowers in each outside corner.
    Blessings!

    You'll have to make one for your table. It matches your window decorations!

    Thanks Peggy Jeanne, it is "Bonnie & Camille" and "Bliss" I think both are by Moda.
