    Very nice! I can't believe that is your first one. You should see MY first! However, we both chose pinwheels
    Great job and I love your fabric choices.

    Thank you all. Yes, at the time a quilt was not a quilt unless it contained pinwheels, lol! I used the Salt Air fabric collection from Moda. There is a lot to love in that line.

    Aren't pinwheels great?

    I Love this baby quilt and I love the Pinwheels they are awesome. That is my go to pattern when I want a really nice quilt that does not take up to much time. I just love your choice of fabric as well. Great job.

    He will loved for a long time. My first baby quilt was pinwheels and when the baby was tired she would find the quilt and snuggle up with it as did her cousin who had a jigsaw quilt a few months younger. She is5 and plays picnics on the carpet with it now. Did you put a label. I did a heart with her name and date of birth made by me.

    I am sure he (and his parents) do love this darling quilt. BTW I still have quilt #1, which is not anywhere near that good.

    That was a mistake after all. I was a little short so had to add a bit of length. There are two borders on there; it was all I could think of to do!
