    Pinwheel and Prairie Points (and Cupcakes)

    A coworker asked me to make a lap quilt for her 11-year-old daughter to give to her for Christmas. Pattern was my choice, but she wanted it related to cupcakes. I found the cupcake fabric first and then all of the other colors to go with it but had a hard time finding the right pattern. Then I saw the Pinwheels and Prairie Points quilt on the board, and I knew this is the one I wanted to use. I tried to recreate the pattern and added the appliqued cupcake cornerstones. I pieced the back to save her on cost and added a row of cupcakes there too. I used just about every bit of fabric I bought plus a little from my own stash. Here is the link to my inspiration quilt : http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t204012.html

    I think it is perfect for an 11 year old. Good choice of pattern and fabrics.

    In my opinion you got all the elements she wanted and more. It's adorable and just is crying for a young girl to love it. You did a great job.
