    Your color choices on that black background - made for a very stunning quilt. I'll have to bookmark this one for sure.

    Very, very nice. I like the colors and how you have put the different size pinwheels together. Great job! I love seeing black in a quilt and black is perfectly used in your quilt.

    Love it! I'm working on dutchman's puzzle blocks off and on but am getting tired of all the small blocks. This is a great idea to get that quilt off my plate. Thanks for posting.

    Isn't it amazing how we can absolutely hate something when we start it, but then an idea comes along & it comes out so stunning? Your waiting really paid off! It's beautiful!

    A year ago, I seen a thread on here about taking 2 squares and sewing around all four sides then cutting twice on the diagonal for easy-peasy pinwheels. So, I just *had* to try it out and see how easy this was. Well, it turned out to be that simple(YaY) and in no time, I had a bunch of pinwheels. Just had no idea what to do with them, lol!
    So they sat, and sat. Then I figured, what the hey!, lets throw them up on the design wall and see what happens. Long story short, what I designed and what I ended up with are in no way even close. But, the final product is, (in my opinion), my best yet. I have also been dickering with FMQ, why I was so scared and intimidated I will never know. It is mostly dense loop-de-loops with spirals and loops in the outer border and the blacks are a variety of dress-shirt material to polys to sateens(?). It is called Free Spirit, in reflection of it's maker... Me! Thanks for looking, and never be afraid to just wing it!

    The first pic is what I set out to make.
    2nd pic is the back of finished quilt(with label :-) ). Those aren't spots on it, some of it is sunlight thru the trees and the "glob" of white is lint from adding a towel in the wash by accident.
    3rd pic is finished quilt front.
    Very nice. You did a great job. Now you know "Dreams do come true"

    Hate is such a strong wrong for those blocks. Turned into a beautiful quilt.

    Marvelous finished quilt. Glad you continued, even with the long pause between steps. It was well worth it and you taught me how. Thanks.

    I actually loved the on the design wall better... I am going to have to try this technique, I do pinwheels a lot, anything to make them faster and easier is right up my alley.
