Finished Quilt - Pastel Pinwheels

First, I love this quilt! I got my idea from a quilt I had pinned, that links to a no-longer-active Flickr account. I made my own measurements and chose six Kona solids.

Pastel Pinwheels

Each pinwheel measures 4.25" (each HST is 2.5" finished), and there are two columns of each color, off set with white squares. Each column is sixteen squares/pinwheels high.

I quilted diagonally in both directions through the white squares. The backing fabrics are the leftover solids, plus a strip of Kona Ash, and a purple print that I also used for the binding.

I'm really pleased with the way this one turned out - so fresh and springy!

    I love it! I agree - it is great for spring.

  2. That quilt is absolutely gorgeous. And I'm so impressed you actually followed through with a pinterest inspiration. I'm usually so busy being inspired I never get around to creating.

      I'll second that. And with all the linky parties and the threadbias site with its design tool, I am doing way too much virtual quilting. Doesn't decrease my stash at all!
