    Not enough that there are designprogramms out there, even more stunning to me is the fact that there are people able to work with them!
    I help myself with the neat copier of DH. All you see besides the middle part is made of paper.
    The 3D pinwheels will be in different colors also and I tend to the pyramids.
    Would apreciate input, maybe even another border.
    Granny

    lots of "fabric" to work with

    Holy Gee...it's like making a quilt twice! It looks absolutely fabulous! Can't wait to see it done. I am sure cutting out paper is alot faster than cutting fabric...but it is pretty cool to see what it will look like and be able to move things around. Is the paper quilt actual size or a tabletop miniature!? :)

    Is that fabric or paper? If it's fabric how are you going to wash it?

    I made copies from each fabric and the only 3D pinwheel I have so far

    how about the pyramids facing each other - with or without sashing?

    I think the pyramids facing each other gives it this really neat, almost 3-D look.

    And I like the sashing!
    I like it the way the bottom picture is :)

    You are very smart. I think a sashing between the pinwheels and the pyramids might look nice and add a little pop to the whole design. But that is just my opinion. Otherwise it is beautiful.

    I love it, otherwise I would never be able to make corners for example. And all the mistakes you make with paper wont happen to you if you start with the fabric.
    Just make sure to get all 505 off the copier, refill paper and hide all the waste before DH comes home :lol:

    Just "made" the corner. The sashing has to be 2 1/4 inch in order to get around with the pinwheels. Split it into two colors of solid??

    Very nice, the border really makes it come together.

    Sorry for breaking my promise and thank you so much for helping me brainstorming

    how about the printed green, kind of repetition to the rather dominant green angle below?

    Hello Granny_59 - your idea of printing fabrics onto paper and then cut and playing with paper, is a good one, but would not like to see DH's face when he finds out all the ink has been used LOL Nice to plan ahead with real colours though.
