Candy Pinwheels Revealed




I've been holding off on posting any pictures of this quilt until it was completely finished. I'm glad I did because now I can present it in all its glory. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this quilt turned out. When I was working on it, I had times where I wondered if it was really going to be anything noteworthy. I don't know why. I guess I was a little unsure how it would look with so much white and green. But I have no qualms about it now. This may even give my whirligig quilt a run for its money as my most favorite quilt. Well... this is atleast a close second.


Its my own design- worked up on that most wonderful of quilt programs, EQ6. My mom quilted it for me last week and then I put on the purple binding over the holiday weekend. I love that purple binding. And all the wrinkley goodness that happened in the dryer. Ok, I'll quit tooting my own horn here. I'm just happy about this one.

I love it! It turned out sooo cute. What size is it? When you come up to the quilt show are you going to bring it? I am not going to question if you are coming or not.
