So, do you remember my pinwheel quilt I started last spring? I got it back from the quilter a few weeks ago and I am sooo happy with how it turned out, so I thought I'd share some pictures with you (it still needs to be bound). This longarm quilting gal that I used is absolutely amazing. She did a wonderful job and totally exceeded my expectations!
When I look at this quilt I feel like I'm looking at something out of a magazine. I'm not bragging when I say that because really it's the quilting that makes it so gorgeous. I told her the design I wanted that I had seen on her website, but I still couldn't picture exactly what it would look like.
She has a long waiting list, so it took a while, but it was totally worth the wait. It was very exciting pulling this quilt out of the box! Here are some photos where you can see some of the quilting detail:
I made the quilt top using this pinwheel block tutorial on Vanessa Christenson's blog. Using charm packs (pre-cut 5" squares) saves a lot of time when making this block. My quilt is made using 4 charm packs (two for all the pinwheels and two- with some leftover-for the border), and a few yards of plain cream fabric. I used Allspice Tapestry by Figtree for Moda. There is one pinwheel block for each of the 40 or so fabrics in the line. You could use any fabric though, and
just cut your own squares. Here is another tutorial for a smaller pinwheel quilt for a baby that is really cute. Love the prarie points border on that one.
See what I mean about photo shoots around here?!
