Stacey said...

ok, now i totally love that fabric!! i so want to buy some, in a bad way! i was here earlier and my computer is weird, so i did not get to leave my comment then. love the binding, the quilting is very nice. i would be afraid to use it if it was me due to 4 kids and ALL that white!! you are seriously making me think of buying some fabric and making a quilt with it also, so not fair!! so far this is my fave, sshh don't tell anyone, no just kidding, peeps will read this!! this rocks though, now i gotta do some major thinking!! have a great day girl! i gotta sew some bags today, custom order! yippee!

Beautiful! I just discovered your blog via your Moda Bakeshop tutorial. I attempted my 1st quilt 15 years ago and nothing since. Your blog has inspired me to try it once again and your tutorial is so easy I know I can do it. Am planning to start gathering my supplies. Thanks for the inspiration!

Kritta22 said...

Awesomeness....did you use green for the binding or white? My pictures on the computer aren't good. How did she quilt on my block....did she pin those ones down??
Do you wanna be a part of a I-Spy swap??

Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful projects!

Well, Rachel, I would be sitting with this quilt close at hand the whole day through. Touching it, looking at it, smiling...and then, you know, I'd have to marry it, I'd be so in love with it. ~grin~

Karen said...

What a fun quilt...everyone did a great job and you get to call this beauty yours;)

Dallas said...

This turned out really great! I love how each block was done by a separate quilter, but they all go so well together. Did you assign specific blocks to each or just ask them for pinwheels and they were all different?

Sue said...

wow it truely is gorgeous.

Michelle said...

This is incredible. I love pinwheels and the colours are stunning. All of you have done such a fabulous job and Julie did a great job on the quilting.

Rachel I LOVE this quilt.

I am new to quilting and recently joined my first online quilting bee. I would love to use this design. Do you have the instructions for the squares? Would you be willing to share?

Karen said...

Hi...have been desiring to construct a pinwheel quilt for a few years now. So, I will endeavor to start out with your beautiful sampler pinwheel! Would love to use your range of colors in your sampler pinwheel! Is there layer cakes for those colors? Thanks for this great adventure of the pinwheel world! Thanks, Karen

knitwit said...

I would love to participate. I do not have a blog. Is that OK? How much backing should I buy? Thanks for organizing the fun.
