Pinwheel Crazy....still

I have officially finished all 20 blocks for my pinwheel quilt! Feels good to have that step behind me.

I have been going back and forth on how to finish it. I swear ruminating is a longer part of the process than actually sewing, quilting, and binding :) I think I have finally settled on a small white border, maybe 2 inches, an all over large meander quilting, and a scrappy binding. After all that, I have to find the best way to attach it to the wall. Any suggestions there?

And now, for an accountability photo. This is the baby/guest room currently...

I have GOT to get this room in order! Hopefully, when I post about my finished pinwheel quilt, I can also post a finished bedroom! Putting this mess out there will provide a bit of motivation, I believe.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  1. The top looks fantastic! And yes, the hemming and hawing is definitely the longest part of the process!!!

  2. the quilt is looking great and I love the idea of using painter's take to number your blocks. many times I have laid something out and then needed to move it only to not be able to put it back the way I had it -- without a great deal of hassle.

    1. Thanks! I use the painters tape for a lot of things. Sometimes I will even mark straight quilting lines with it.
