    Just finished sewing the top of this together. I found the kit a couple of years ago, I originally bought it for a secret santa present. But fell in love with the border fabric, so it stayed here at home with me. It went together pretty fast, but think I'll take a break from doing any pinwheels for awhile. The fabric is all 1800 repo's.

    That is super-duper pretty!! I love it! The fabrics are beautiful. I can see why you decided to keep it for sure.

    I had to laugh at your comment about not doing pinwheels for awhile now. I totally understand how you feel just having made 270 pinwheels myself. Definitely won't be doing that again soon!

    It measures at 46 x 56, still not sure how I'll be getting it quilted. I haven't learned how to machine quilt yet, so I'll need to have someone else do it for me.
