Finished Dutch Pinwheel Quilt

Hi friends! Wow, how time flies! I can't believe it's august already? 
During my blog absence I finally managed to finish up my Dutch pinwheel quilt yayy! I do like how it's turned out. Thank you for all your helpful ideas on how to finish my border, as you can see I chose a pretty Atsuko Matsuyama floral print, finished with a soft yellow binding. It's a nice lap size measuring 44" x 57", perfect for relaxing with in the evening :)
I chose to simply stitch in the ditch again for this quilt, (I'm too scared to try free motion just yet!). For the back I managed to use a pink gingham bed sheet, which works out well for me  because I never seem to have enough fabric for backing!
and I even managed to get a quick picture outside while the sun was shining! Hope you all had a good weekend? Jessie, xo

  11. Stunningly beautiful as usual! You must have the biggest stash of gorgeous fabrics as you seem to use so many nice ones. Love the pink gingham backing and well done on using a bedsheet, I like to try and do that too it I can. The cost of backing in 'proper' fabric kind of scares me!

  17. It's gorgeous, and I totally empathise with you how you feel about free motion stitching–it's scary stuff!
