    Hi. Thought maybe I would try sharing a photo, haven't done this before. I decided to use some of my crazy wild stash and make a scrappy pinwheel quilt. I didn't like it, so then I embroidered all the sashing with beige perle cotton. I just finished quilting it this week, and finished the binding last night. Yes, it is different.

    Yes, the embroidery took me weeks. And I was particular not to match the colors in the blocks, made an acutal effort.

    It's beautiful! I don't think I would have thought to do the embroidering. It makes it look extra special.

    Before I read your description I noticed the sashings--it makes the quilt.
