Double Pinwheels, Anyone?


Well, the top is finished! I like the way it turned out so much.

This is a cheerful quilt top. Most of my quilts are more dark than light. I purposely made this one lighter just to have a little variety on my quilt stand!! These blocks are so easy to piece. I already have quilt plans. I just need to piece a back and get started.

I recently received a package of stencils, and there is one that I want to try for the border of this. It's a feather with tendrils coming off occasionally. I will quilt the center with freehand pinwheels, then try the stencil in the border. The border will be kind of tedious, but I'm willing to give it a go.

This finished at about 72" x 88". Only the right half is pinned to my design wall in the pic; Emily is holding up the left half. Doesn't she have nice fingernails? LOL!

Off for back piecing...

Joan, I love it! Just wondering, what size your blocks were. When you quilt on your domestic, did you mark anything in the middle or just wing it?
