little pinwheel quilt.

If you visit my blog with any sort of regularity you will know that I have a bad habit of promising sew and tell that I don't deliver on. Well, my friends.... I plan to change all that. This is a stroller quilt/play mat finished months ago....tada!

I wasn't sure which color sashing to use but I finally settled on grey. I'm glad I did; It just makes the other colors seem so much brighter. This is a small quilt made with the intention of going in my shop although I don't know if I can part with it. All these candy colors make me want to gift it to the first little girl I see on the street!

I finally hung a picture hanging wire on my sun porch so I can take some proper photos for my quilts. I have been going back and forth on how to hang my quilts for a loooong time. I finally spent the $2 and bought the wire, I am really happy I did! Having hardwood floors throughout the entire house is great and I wouldn't change it, but the dust bunnies accumulate in a matter of hours in the winter time. Frankly,I was getting sick of vacuuming every time I want to take a photograph! This certainly remedies that situation. Do you hang your quilts? what do you use?

There is that Olive Kona again. If I could only buy one color of Kona ever again, this would be it!
Thanks for looking....I PROMISE to share some more projects really soon.
~Go make something!

That's a darling little quilt! And thanks for the picture wire idea. I should do the same - it would sure beat waiting until my husband is home to hold up a quilt for me. :-)

Love it! I love pinwheel blocks, and I love the gray sashing you used.

BTW, great way to hang your quilt for photographing! I am forever trying to find a place to take pictures of quilt projects, especially in winter.

I love those happy pinwheels!

And sometimes I think I would never sweep if I didn't need to baste or photograph some fabric-y item!

That is beautiful and the grey was such a great choice because it does make the other colors pop. Love it and I wish I had the patience to do something so awesome.
