Pinwheels Baby Quilt


I have been commissioned to make 2 baby quilts so I got to work on them this week.
For the first one I decided to go with the traditional pinwheel block.


Sorry I forgot to take photos of it before quilting which I usually like to do. The quilt measures 32" x 36" and my pinwheel blocks finished at 6.5".   I used a thick 6oz polyester wadding.  It is light weight but gives a nice puffiness to the less densely quilted areas.


                                             This photo was taken under artificial light.


I decided to work little feathers in the plain cream parts and just an echo line on the feature fabric.  It gives a very textured look.

Luckily the sun came out one morning and I was able to get these shots.  Natural light is so much better.






This is the back of the quilt.


All I have to do is bind this now and its finished.  I've already started on quilt #2.  I am doing friendship star blocks for that one.  Got a good start on the top yesterday but I'll show you more in my next post.
Enjoy your weekend.
Rhianon.
