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.


Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and A Lovely Year of Finishes mid month check in.



  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.

  3. Ooooh...I have a love/hate relationship with pinwheels! Glad to see that you've completed the top - good luck with the back!

  4. Very pretty. I love the pin wheel pattern.
