Funky Pinwheel Quilt

For those of you who have been following my blog for a while... You might remember the Funky Pinwheel Rulers I sold in my Etsy Shop for a while. 


I cut the acrylic by hand and used vinyl for the numbers. It was a LOT of work. 
I tried several times to find someone to produce them for me. But... it never worked out. 

I made this quilt when I thought I'd be marketing rulers...well that never happened, and I never finished the quilt! It was buried in the back of my closet and I found it cleaning one day....So finally several weeks ago I pulled out the top, sent it off to the quilter, made some scrappy binding and... I LOVE it!  




The prints are left overs from fabric that I sold in my Etsy Shop years ago. The solid's are from various makers. The quilting was done by Lynn Peterson from Sew & Sew Machine Quilting.



It's what I would call Toddler size. (wish I would have made it twin) :) 



It will go on the shelf with the rest of my baby/toddler quilts...I like having a little stash of baby / toddler quilts for gifts... 




I think I might have to make another quilt using the same sort of color/fabric design. I'm really loving the print with multi colored solid backgrounds. Hmmmmm....




Happy Sewing!!!

Oh - this is just BEAUTIFUL! The soft pastel background with the colorful prints look so cuddly together.....AND the quilting on it just makes the whole quilt special. Please don't hide it in your cupboard.

I bought one of those rare templates from you. Our mission finishes in February and then I'm going to make all a Funky Pinwheel. Love all your colors!

Glad to see you've been having fun in your RV.
