    Here is one I'm working on now. Actually, I just need to bind it. I'm going to use all the pinwheel colors for that. It has been quilted in the ditch since this picture was taken. I made one of these for my first grand daughter in softer colors. My sis told me if she ever had another baby, she wanted one of these. Now she is about to be a first time Grandma so this is a surprise for her.

    I'm using the rest of the leftovers for a grandmother's flower garden.

    Here is a great link showing how they work.

    I really like the look of the pinwheels on stripes. Great looking quilt! And Sylvia is adorable - I love the way she's "studying" the pinwheel!

    Love the 3D pinwheel idea. I can imagine a baby loving the loose triangles to play with. It would be fun to do them in satin, since babies seem to love the feel of satin! Thanks for sharing the tutorial. Your quilts are wonderful.

    What a great idea Jenell! The 3D tactile quality is great for a baby! You can see how much Sylvia loves it! What a cutie pie! Bless her.

    I like how you used the striped fabric for the background of your blocks. Working with stripes is hard for me. Thanks for the idea. Pretty quilt.
