Hope Valley Pinwheels



Well, I have to complete this one by Saturday, because it is going to be a gift for a friend who is having a baby soon, and her shower is on this Saturday!


I am very happy with how these blocks have turned out.  The pinwheel-within-a-pinwheel effect I achieved simply by rotating each individual pinwheel block by 90 degrees makes for an interesting visual effect, I think.  I will pin and hopefully quilt it today, then machine bind it tomorrow.  No fancy stuff here, just a beaut little crib quilt quick smart!

Oh I love it!

My next quilt is going to be a pinwheel quilt for my cousin Charlotte who is turning 1 next month. Will def have to get your advice.

I love the Hope Valley range. They are beautiful! Must go look in yr previous posts to see where you got them. I am a few years behind the times and have just begun lusting after her Flea Market Fancy range (SO hard to get now). http://www.flickr.com/groups/1220860@N24/ Sigh. :-)

You should be pleased with it, this is a gorgeous quilt Sarah, the pinwheels remind of the pinwheel thingys you used to buy at fairs as a child and watch the wind blow them round. I love the hope valley xo
