I love the pinwheels! Bind it in that beautiful pink. A very nice quilt.

This is what I had in mind too when I first saw it. Then the pink border, or you could also find a print (even floral) that has the pink and yellow or pink, yellow and green in the fabric. The border doesn't need to be a solid color. You could make the quilt label for the back out of a pinwheel also. Very cute quilt, will fit perfectly for her. IMHO

So far, it's unanimous. Love the pinwheels and a pink binding. She'll love it (and so would I).

I went back and looked at the panel a couple of times -

The pinwheels appear to be the right color - but I think they detract from the carousel in the center. To me, they make the merry-go-round seem really small. Also - the other lines in the panel are curves and arcs - and the pinwheels are pointy.

They won't make the quilt look 'bad' - I just think something 'softer' would be better to try to make the top larger.

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.
