    Bright Pinwheels finished

    I finished Bright Pinwheels last night including an embroidered label (a first for me.) Today I washed it and tomorrow I will deliver it to my friends who are gifting it to their new great nephew. I wasn't really sure about the mother's choices of color, but it grew on me as I worked on it. This is my first paid quilt job so I am really hoping they like it.

    love it ! like the tags along the inner border too.. how did you quilt this? trying to figure out where you ran.. through the pinwheels in the ditch? love the colors!
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Chairjogger - I did SID through the pinwheels and 1/4" from the edge of the first border. I used a poly batting so did not quilt beyond the prairie points. I love doing prairie points and may have to find another pattern to use them.

    Your quilt is beautiful.....great colours.
    What size is the quilt? I have pinwheels blocks (10" X 10") and I planned on making one 5 rows X 6 rows. I think I have changed my mind ...... when I saw yours. Thank you for sharing!

    What a wonderful quilt and the prairie points just make it pop! I am sure the little one will love those points too. The fabric is perfect as it provides a lot of visual movement.
