    Here are the pinwheels I've made for my GD's quilt. Now I need to find the fabric for between them, then the three boarder fabrics. Can't decide on what color to make those, but GD's favorite colors are pink and green so will aim there. Pattern has them yellow and blue.

    Great start - maybe you could find a floral with lots of pink and green for the background fabric.

    Oh, that is going to be so sweet!!! I love the idea of a little girl's pinwheel quilt. I sure hope you'll show us a completed quilt.

    Great looking pinwheel blocks, I would try to find a little darker green and pink for the borders than the ones you used for the pinwheels. Just a thought.

    When you find the fabric you think will work, you should lay out the pinwheels on it like you did in the picture to see if it goes well. Sometimes you want the dark part of the pinwheel to be accentuated, sometimes the light side.

    Pinwheel is my favorite block. I love making them then playing with either sashing or backgrounds to see which way they look best.
