Pinwheel Sampler Top Done

I finished my pinwheel sampler which I made following Rachel's, p.s.i quilt, quilt along.

When I saw Rachel's first 2 blocks I could no longer resist joining in and knew I had the perfect fabrics for it. In 2007 I bought a Moda line of fabric called Visions by Sandy Gervais. I loved it so much I couldn't cut into it. When I saw the first blocks for the quilt along I knew I had to use it. The solid fabric I used is a Patrick Lose Marbles color.

 
My first 2 blocks.

I went ahead and made all the blocks and then realized I did not have enough of the Marbles fabric for sashing but I did have enough of the blue to sash it with that. I like the effect. I think the quilt looks very soft and subtle and the blue sashing allows each block to shine.

I usually don't love yellow but in this quilt I am just loving the yellow, especially together with the blue.

I've had the top done for about 2 weeks but am stumped on how to quilt it. Any quilting suggestions would be great.

  1. beautiful! love this fabric.

    my top is totally together except for one major disaster. the fabric i used for background/sashings and hopefully for my borders, i didn't have enough. and now i feel like i can't finish my quilt. it has to have borders *sob*.

  2. Marianne, I have always had a particular liking for pinwheels and your is gorgeous. I have also always had difficulty with deciding how to quilt a sampler so I will be waiting to see what you do with that challenge!
