Baby Pinwheels

Today's finished quilt comes from a pattern found on the Moda Bake Shop it is made from the Domestic Bliss by Moda using Bella solid with it.  I won the 2 charm packs that made this quilt.


This quilt was quite a challenge for me because I followed a pattern.  Since when do men ever follow directions.  OK in all honesty I did not follow the pattern, Tanya handed me things I sewed and I handed them back to her(she was distracting me from what I really wanted to quilt).  All in all it did turn out nice.  Except for those silly little prairie points (that's the silly triangles) since I was not paying proper attention like most men who has a back seat driver (or in this case quilter). I did not quite get the whole make sure you sew the points down correctly and sadly they are a little worse for ware and some of the corners hang out.  Tanya sewed most of them back down, but I know next time I am not letting this be ran from the back seat.


But again Tanya took some great pictures an all in all this is a wonderful quilt.

Great quilt, and I love the way the triangles go the way they want to. It's like the "pinwheels" are blowing them around!

As you can see, I'm a little behind too, but almost caught up now in commenting on all the great things that have been linked up!

So. This is a really fun quilt. I love the fabrics and the {slightly wonky} prairie points {I'd never heard them called that until the last few years -- I always called them picots [peek-os]}. Tanya, great job with the photos! Cute quilt! Fun finish! Thank you for linking up!
