I think your choice of accent fabric works wonderfully with your focus fabric. I think it takes a good eye to see the potential for a particular fabric to be a candidate for this type of block; you certainly have it. Must have been fun for you to sew this up.
Those chickens do look like they are having a great time, too! Dancing around those pinwheels! What a fun looking quilt! I wanted to reply to the comment you left on my blog, Susan. But since you use your Google+ profile, you are a no reply commenter. Glad to hear you are interested in the tutorial I am working on at Sew Fresh Quilts.
Thanks! I want to do another!
I love to talk about quilting, and would love to hear from you!
