    Pinwheel Border on, sandwiched and ready to quilt

    I thought you might like to see how the pinwheel borders look on the baby quilt that I'm making for my great niece that is due to make her first appearance in this world very soon. I have the quilt sandwiched and in the hoop with stitching underway. Hope the baby doesn't come until its finished. Doc says it could be any day and not the August due date he first gave. I sure wish my brother could have lived long enough to see this little gal before he died. How does it look now that it has all four sides of the border on? I plan to bind it in Hot Pink.

    The border turned out perfect and I can't wait to see the hot pink binding! And I believe your brother will be looking down on that beautiful little girl from the minute she's born.

    Pretty! I think the hot pink binding will frame it up nicely.
