Dutch Pinwheel Top

I'm really excited to share with you my 'finished' dutch pinwheel quilt top! I'm saying 'finished' because I'm still undecided if I'm going to add another border of some sorts? I'm really stuck, any thoughts on a border idea; simple squares peiced together? a printed border in one colour? Suggestions are greatly appreciated!


It's been such a pleasure peicing this together, the design is nice and simple and because the blocks are so big it hasn't taken too long at all! I'm looking forward to getting this one finished, just got to narrow down the binding and backing fabric choices now, hmmm...
Have a lovely, crafty weekend! Jessie xo

  1. It's wonderful. You did a great job. I see PKM fabric in there! If it were me, I'd choose a medium value fabric in whatever color you want to 'pop!" I'd keep it narrow--no wider than your sashing.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Wonderful! I would suggest a thin red border---maybe a red with tiny white polka dots.

    Happy sewing! :)

  5. Oh this is SO pretty!! I love the pink and yellow one in the last photo! How about a border of alternating squares of white and some of the florals used in the blocks?

  6. This is beautiful!!! And the fabrics are divine! I'm not usually a huge fan of borders but I think a simple border of squares would be just the ticket! x

  7. Have you thought of a small border of alternating white and simple pinwheels with another solid white outer to finish it? LOVE the fabrics:)

  9. This looks so fresh and beautiful, Jessie!
    What about a quite small border from one of the fabrics you used in the blocks (only half the width of the sashing) and then a wider white border?

  10. So pretty! I agree with what others have said...keep the border small and simple!

  11. This is beautiful. I agree with the simple look. Your focus is on those pretty blocks popping out from the white. Sometimes all you need is a colorful binding. It's going to look awesome!

  12. Love Steffi's idea of the outline border, but - border or no border - it looks lovely x

  13. So pretty and I think a small border with the fabrics from the center would look great.

  14. It's great! I love how all the blocks look together. The colour white is perfect for your quilt. With a small colorful border it will be perfect. Congratulations!
