a whirly pinwheel~ the quilt top

i finally got the top all done!! yah!! this was a bit time consuming with all the cutting and trimming during each step, but well worth it!! i used this tutorial from two dogs & a quilt for making the pinwheels. i like how it has the pinwheel look, but still has the touch of the whirly giggle.

hope everyone has a splendid week! :)

  6. it's gorgeous! i love the colors you chose. i've wondered what it would look like with sashing. (beautiful, i see!!!) i agree, i like how your blocks look like a pinwheel and whirlygiggle combined.

  8. Do you, like, buy bolts of white fabric? If you don't, you should. And then I will do the exact same thing so I can be like you when I grow up. It's beautiful!

  9. Ooh, I love it, Kerri! Love how the sashing turned out. Have you already decided how you're going to quilt it?

    And seeing it go from halfway done to ready to quilt in just a few days is inspiring me to jump back into the quilt for my brother... Need to make somemore headway with that!
