    Definitely pinwheels! You might consider doing 2 adjacent sides in one color combo and the other in a different combo. I'm drawn to that kind of finish on some quilts for kids. But definitely pinwheels, they really go with the carousel theme.

    I'll be sure to post when finished. I just put the last border on and its ready for quilting. Thanks for all the input!! The majority has spoken. Pinwheels it is. I did appreciate all of the other comments and there were a lot of good points made. I'm planning on doing another one of these so I might try some of the other suggestions on it. Thanks!!!!
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    I think children and pinwheels go together. The pinwheels with a pink binding is my vote also.

    I like the pinwheels. Cute panel. I think the pinwheels give it some additional whimsy. Love the yellow and blue pinwheels against the pink and yellow bordering the carousel. Please remember to show us your completed quilt. Thanks for sharing.

    Odd man out here.....I think that it detracts from the carrosel. However, I seem to be in the huge minority. LOL
