    Baby Pinwheel (first quilt I've ever finished)

    I found the pattern in an old magazine from the 1990's. I used the birthing method to sew the edges together, then quilted it with my sewing machine (stitch in the ditch). Only one motif was hand-quilted.

    I have two in mind. Either an Endless Stairs quilt or one made with shoo-fly blocks.

    Congrats on your finish! I've done the birthing method many times and it works great for small projects, And the stitch in the ditch well I avoid I think its too hard! Thanks for sharing!
