    Ok ladies...here is what I have been having so much trouble putting together! The outer boarder is just laid out for a visual and not stitched yet. I am thinking of adding a few more boarders to make it a little bit bigger since I lost some size trying to square up all of the pinwheels.

    Maybe you guys would have some ideas for me for top quilting this one? I am horrible in that I love to piece and applique but hate to top quilt! Help!

    No ideas, but wanted to tell you how pretty it is and how nice your pinwheels came out.

    Lovely quilt
    I like to make tops; do not want to spend time quilting them, so I have all my large quilts done by a fabulous LA quilter.

    Thank you so much, even though it was difficult I might still do another sometime :)

    In the interest of saving money, I have never sent one out to be done. I figure that I can sew so I should be able to fumble my way through it. I mainly stitch in the ditch :)

    The pattern came from the book The Thimbleberries Book of Quilts. The demo was done in a pinkish red and white and was just too overpowering. I thought with the green it would feel more christmasy and I think it made the pinwheels pop more :)

    I would stitch in the ditch around the pinwheels than put a pattern in the solid green squares as well as a pattern in the borders. The quilt is beautiful!

    That is SO pretty. I agree with you...love to do the piecing and putting things together, but the machine quilting isn't my favorite thing to do. I need to improve my skills. I do like to hand quilt and my husband built me a gorgeous cherry quilting frame to encourage me to hand quilt more often.
    I think I would sid around the pinwheels and then do something fancier in the plain areas.
