Pinwheel quilts are fun to make. I just sent this one to Anna, my niece who's almost two years old now. For some mysterious reason I already had all of these feminine girly pastel fabrics in my stash. I really have an aversion to pastel colors, especially pink. But, I'm pretty much in love with this quilt, especially when I imagine Anna dragging it around the house with her. I hope that when it's all tattered with love, I can take it back and convert it into a stuffed animal or something. That goes for all of the other baby quilts that I've sent out recently.
I took a 'Hail Mary' shot outside on my deck. My toes are in all the shots and I decided to leave them. So why is it that beat up chippy furniture looks cool and trendy, but beat up chippy decks just look old and beat up?
Ever since I made this quilt, I have felt compelled to name and label every quilt. I should've made the pinwheel the darker color and the border the light green color. I actually considered taking the label off and redoing it, after having sewn it onto the quilt. But I didn't. I'm kind of glad that my perfectionist tendencies are lessening as the years go by. It's a relief actually.
