My fix


This is how I decided to fix my pinwheel problem. I made new pinwheels using different fabrics. I like it better also, the pinwheels are a bit more subdued. I don't know why but this quilt top does not photograph very well. It really is not as bright as it comes out in the photos.
I will add a three inch border in brown and be done. It will be a square quilt, about 61x61. I don't get to excited about square quilts but it will make a nice table cover.
Have a good evening. Dot

Great fix! The quilt looks really nice. If you use it on a table, do you quilt it any differently (like with a different batting)?

It's a beautiful quilt, I'm glad you found a way to fix the lack of pinwheels.

Beautiful piecing - I always like pinwheel blocks. It will make a great table quilt.

Did you undo all those pinwheels and replace them?! The result is excellent, but a lot of work!

The colors are wonderful and the "fix" is a great one. It is lovely, Dot!

I love the sashing between blocks. It's beautiful, Dot.

I really like it! Especially the sashing stripes.

(mmm I need to proof read before sending ...)

Anyway, your quilt is lovely, but how you handled the sashing and cornerstones make it POW!

(There, no mispellings this time!)

Looks really good to me!

That is a great fix - I like these better than the original ones too, but Dot, did you have to rip out all those old ones to put in the new ones?
