A Finished Pinwheel Baby Quilt top!

I actually did it! I finished the Pinwheel Baby Quilt top! And it is awesome! I'm so excited I can participate in another Sew and Tell!

Pinwheel Quilt

Sorry for the crappalicious photos, they were taken inside tonight after dark with a flash.

I've been working on this slowly but steadily this week, a bit each night. Tonight I finally sewed on the prairie points and the sashing. I LOVE it!

And for being my first "real" quilt top (I don't really count the receiving blanket quilt as it was just squares and weird stretchy flannel, etc), I think my piecing is pretty good! Nearly all of my corners and points line up, there are one or two that are a hair off but you don't notice it unless you know to look for it. I doubt the recipients will look that closely!

Now I just need to get some backing and binding fabric. I have an early morning hair appointment tomorrow that isn't too far from the LQS so I think when I'm done with that I'll swing over there and pick something up. I noticed they've got some yardage of Wee Play and so hopefully I can get something that coordinates.

In other exciting news, there is a giveaway going on over at the Flea Market Fancy Freaks blog!



Run right over, there is all kinds of good stuff to be given away, including 29 fat quarters of FMF! Unfortunately, not all to the same person. ;)  Wouldn't that be awesome!  I'm running right over to enter, you should too!

This is fab! The pinwheels on the own looked great, but I absolutely love the triangle border! Way to go!

This looks really great, no apologies on lighting! Your prairie points are a great finish, too. and yes, your points are spot on! the centers are a bit challenging, I think.
