    Just a 1/2" pink border, then your pinwheels, then the pink binding will make them standout. Love it!

    I think the pinwheels add to the theme. Go for it.

    I so agree....pink binding and a bit of bling (if she is old enough).

    My vote is definitely the pinwheels, they look like they belong and really set off the quilt top.

    I agree! Does have that spinning look to emphasize the caroulsel theme. So cute! The suggestions of bling by someone would also be cute but don't know the age of the child and safety would be utmost!

    I love your quilt. Like somebody else said, I'd think a pink binding would tie it all together. It is gorgeous.
