Girlie Pinwheels

Here is a bright "little girl baby quilt" that I designed using my favourite little pinwheel blocks again. I made a "little boy baby quilt" that I gave to my neighbours, when their little boy, Dusan, was born.

I enjoy whimsy, as you know, and it is fun having a change from repro fabrics every now and then. It was a challenge to use black and white fabrics and still keep a baby feel to the quilt - great for modern Mum's! The pinwheels are 3" finished and I make them using the trim-back method - fiddly little things, but I love the movement they put into a quilt.

Have a great weekend everyone - 'bye!

Another beautiful quilt! My sister-in-law is having a baby in November but we don't know what it is yet, so I really need to find something that would be for either boy or girl!!!

What a beautiful baby quilt, and the little black and white pinwheels give it such life. I'll bet that mama and baby will love it a lot. Your American Beauty is sooo awesome. I don't know how you manage to make so many perfectly wonderful quilts.
