Okay so here are the pictures of the baby quilt top. BTW the colors are not as in your face as they look in this pictures. Just a nice bright clear pink. I am going to add a border of the seeds and then bind it with a plain black.

I really like this Pinwheel pattern - just not the seam mountain in the middle.

Here is a closer look at the blocks with the leftover seed fabric that I am going to use for the border.

I picked up this fabric at the same time that I got the watermelons. Was planned for another project thatnever materialized.

So I am actually thinking about using it for the backing. Thoughts anyone?????

Oh yeah, the floral matches perfectly, great for backing. It gives the whole quilt a feeling of summer.

They are the 3d Pinwheels. Figured they were perfect for a play quilt.

Your quilt is super! I love the effects that the fabric has. I think the backing fabric will work magnificently with this quilt. Thank you for sharing.
