Perfect Pinless Pinwheels

Perfect Pinless Pinwheels is done, and she's soft and pretty!


After so much angst about how to quilt her, I decided on a pretty panto called Spring Vine.  An open design of flowers and leaves,





plus 80/20 batting, gave the quilt the desired softness and drape. On the front, Glide gold, lightly bringing out the yellow in the floral print, and on the back, Glide lilac to match the backing.

This quilt was started in a class at Road 2 California in January, and finally finished up.



A lovely pattern designed by Kimberly Einmo, it looks like a beautiful garden!

A few more closeups.





And the pretty soft purple backing has a bit of leftover parts from the front.



Happy with how this turned out - a simple design, but a great looking quilt!

Linking up with all the terrific linky parties on the sidebar! Happy Quilting!

  6. The quilting design works well! And I like how you used two different colors of thread (top and back) and you can't tell, at least not from the photo. Very pretty!
