*sigh*
what can i say?!?!
i'm in ♥ with this quilt.
how's that for a predictable statement?!?!
:P

this quilt will have a special place in my heart because of my pregnancy.
i announced the pinwheel sampler quilt along before i knew i was preggo.
well i had a tiny suspicion, but i was being naive.

i think "morning sickness" every single time i look at this quilt.
& how i just HAD to push myself to not let anyone down.
{i had over 350 of yall to answer to.}
it was a struggle, but SO worth it.

please see our flickr group for other completed pinwheel samplers.
pinwheel eye candy galore.

quilt stats:
fabric = simple abundance by bonnie & camille for moda
size = 58 1/2" x 58 1/2"
quilting = darla padilla
complete directions found on my sidebar

oh & for the record...
if i had it to do over again, i totally would've used red print for the binding.
just sayin'.

Pin It!

Beautiful. Having so much background really sets off all of the pinwheels. I have an Irish Chain that I hated the colors, ripped out as much as I stitched, nothing lined up...Then I realized I was pg...Every time I see it I get a little flutter!

Love it!! I always love pinwheels, they are so fun and set the whole quilt in motion.

I love how your quilt turned out!!
Thanks again for the great quilt-along. I had a lot of fun, and learned a lot too!
I'm still working on my quilt, this week I'll sew all the blocks and sashing together.

Mali said...

Oops I'll try again! I just wanted to thank you for making this QA. I had/am having so much fun making this quilt. It is my favorite quilt I have made to date so thank you for all your hard work!

Janet said...

I'm still working on mine! I love yours. Thanks so much for all the work you did to have the quilt along. It's been fun and encouraging to keep on going. I'll post on flickr when I finish.

I was wondering when we would see the finished product--it looks terrific! I have a layer cake and am going to start mine just now.

Thanks for helping so many of us.

Rachel, your pinwheels are gorgeous and I love all the white background and the swirly quilting lines. So nice that this quilt will always have a special connection to this special baby. Hope all is going well and you don't suffer too much in the summer heat.

The binding caught my eye right away, I love it! The whole quilt is beautiful and I wouldn't change a thing!

holly said...

It is beautiful When I find the time I am gonna make it. Congrats on being prego.

Rachel said...

It's beautiful! Are you leaving the pinwheel block instructions posted for a while? I'd love to make one of these... whenever I have the time. sigh.

For the record, I think the binding looks great, but, yeah, red would have been nice too.

Sandy said...

Gorgeous! I definitely will be making this one...probably this winter.

Beautiful quilt. I do so love quilts with pinwheels and with white background. Love the sampler effect.
But sorry about the morning sickness.

You take beautiful pictures of your quilts (which are always beautiful as well). What's your secret?

Love the sashing is the same as the backgrounds, it just lets the blocks float beautifully.

traceyjay said...

it's absolutely beautimous Rachel. :)

Can't wait to see the new little sweetie snuggled up in it.

Freda said...

So pretty!!! Love it!

Sarah Craig said...

That is so gorgeous - your pinwheels really pop against that background. I agree with you that a darker binding might have been interesting, but I like the one you chose!

Elizabeth said...

Wow! It turned out beautifully! Thanks for the wonderful quilt-along! I still have one block to finish, but this is definitely a quilt at the top of my to-do list! you rock.
