Default Pinwheel quilt done

Ok, it is done, just put it in a wash. This quilt is made from leftovers, from 'snowballing' another quilt. The border was done separately but it goes well with the pinwheels. The backing is white muslin. While FMQ, only then, I have notice that some of the pinwheels go the opposite way, or well, one has to look to see it. Quilting is simple, straight lines on white squares and somewhat wiggle on the pinwheels. In the border I 'shadowed' the flowers and in empty space did more flowers and leaves and then I did straight lines as a background to the flowers. Took me a while to do that and I have been told to take a break from quilting?
Thank you for looking.

Having some pinwheels in the opposite direction is charming! Makes for a happier quilt!

It’s beautiful! I don’t even see the backwards pinwheels but they were a design choice, right?

The applique border makes this pretty quilt even prettier!
