I finally finished Emma's pinwheel quilt top. If you attempt to make one of these, let me make a suggestion. Don't use a psychotic amount of pinwheels as I did here. This is supposed to be a baby quilt for my four month old daughter...without backing, batting, or any kind of quilting whatsever, this little quilt would probably smother her! LOL* I am thinking I'm going to back it with minkie and leave out the batting alltogether. I will do something VERY simple for the quilting, just to keep it from shifting when washing. For now I think it will just be a throw for her to lay on, play with, and to put over the side of her crib...but I don't think I'm going to put it over her unless it's like, -20 degrees outside. LOL* Lesson learned. ;) Sometimes more is just...MORE.
It still turned out kinda neat didn't it? Can't you just imagine a little baby who's just learned to sit on their own and touch and feel playing with all those little folds and shapes? I think this will be such a great little blankie for playing on.
If any of you would like me to I can do a little tutorial on how to make this block. I know when I first started the quilt a lot of you asked for patterns and instructions. :)
