Pinwheel quilt - finished!


Pinwheel quilt - finished!, originally uploaded by soja.

Wow - having the rulers, mat and rotary cutter really made a difference! I didn't have to trim off much more than the extra backing to size up the quilt, and it has ended up perfectly square (or rectangular really...)

And being able to cut the binding strips with the cutter, rather than scissors was much quicker and easier. I'm really pleased with the binding, and the whole quilt. It is so pretty! I'll take more pictures when my camera batteries have recharged and when there is some light - it rained almost continuously through the weekend and Monday.

Edit: The sun came out, the quilt has been washed and it's out drying on the line, all wrinkled up... :-)

I like the looks of it already! Teal is one of my favs! Lovely stippling too! Can't wait to see the rest of it! Cheers!

Thanks Cristin - especially for the stippling bit. :-) This is only the second time I've stippled a quilt, the stitch length varies a bit too much, but I'm hoping after a good wash and wrinkle it'll look fine...

I'm fairly new to free-motion quilting too - I've done about 3 baby quilts, and one lap sized quilt. I'm still working on "perfecting" it... but a good washing and drying covers a multitude of sins. Don't worry!
You're doing GREAT! ;-)
