Made in a baby quilt size, this is just a small portion of a larger pattern.
And what a fun quilt - love those pinwheels! They have certainly brightened a dreary winter. Now for some closeups of these pretties.
First the pinwheels, or as I see them, flowers.
Those in the blocks are surrounded by a flange (here the dark orange), making me opt for no background quilting in that area. I like the resulting puff!
Center pinwheels (or flowers) were treated with the same fill as those in the squares, with added straight lines in the background.
I could have gone crazy with a fill here, but then the pinwheels wouldn't stand out, and the fill on the print background would have to change. As it is, I think I managed to make all three areas work together nicely. It's all about contrast.
Can't forget the backside, on green flannel,
with a closeup.
Now for my favorite picture, one that shows the texture in the print background squares.
A perfect fill for this quilt, with all that yummy texture!
So cheers to a successful day! That 'do not disturb' sign worked wonders - guess I'll have to use it more often!
Have a great day!
