Finished Pinwheel Baby Quilt


I have finished the Mini Pinwheel Quilt and have given it a modern and no fuss look by quilting it with my favorite quilting - straight lines.


The back of the quilt is also pieced.


The finished size of this quilt is 30 inches x 36 inches. The entire quilt is machine pieced and machine quilted. The only hand sewing I did was to slip stitch the binding to the back of the quilt.


These little pinwheels really were very quick and easy to make. Let me know if you have had success using the instructions from my previous post on how to make a template for the pinwheels, or if you have made some blocks. I would love to see them!

Now I am going to re-focus and prepare the backing for my Half Hexagon Quilt! No more distractions!!


 Mini Pinwheel Quilt is for sale in my Etsy Store.  You will find the listing here.

  16. I really like this. Honestly, my favourite part is the sashing. It is nice to see the change from white that I've been seeing everywhere.

  23. I love these. The straight line quilting does look gorgeous. Do you use a walking foot or a darning foot for that? The linen makes it all so lovely.

  24. Love the quilt; love the back! Your use of gray is so intriguing to me. I was just reading a little about color theory online today and found some exercises where they placed a gray square inside of squares of various other colors, and in subtle ways, the gray absorbs or takes on other colors. Or something like that :). It was interesting. I'm taking a class on color at a local quilt shop this Thursday, and I can't wait!

  29. Love this quilt!!! I thought I was doomed to never doing my own machine quilting because i can not even draw a squiggle let alone sew one!! :) But you have given me hope...I can do straight lines. How do you do you start and stop inside the blocks? back stitching or what? Love, love, love all your quilts!!

    i too am making a windmill quilt, but mine is a large lap sized. i bought the template at joanns, and found it super easy to use. i have all my blocks cut, and am on to sewing....just need it to be a wee bit cooler!!
    love how you put borders on your blocks, super clever!

  33. Can I ask what the sashing is? I saw this quilt on your Etsy shop, where it said that is a linen/cotton- any chance it is Essex Putty? Just trying to get an idea of whether it is the right colour for my next project before I order it from the USA (I'm in Melbourne too)!!

    Ta, Cherry.
