I was asked about the pinwheels. Yes I did replace each one of them. It wasn't as hard as it seems. I just ripped the seam out about and inch or two on each side , removed the pinwheel from the sashing, sewed in the new pinwheel and sewed the seams up again. It went rather smoothly without any hiccups. I do like the outcome immensely.
Well what do you do with the pinwheels you removed? This is what I did. I made a small quilt or a table topper, whatever one wants to use it for. As you can probably tell, the binding is sewn on but not sewn on the back. I plan to do that sometime this weekend.
I was also asked what type of batting is I was going to use the the original quilt top for a table cloth. I will use what I usually use, just 4 0z polyester batting. This seems to work well for me, I have not had any problems with it. Most of my quilts are given away and used for utility so to keep costs down this is what I use. If I know I am keeping it for myself or giving away to a special person or as a special gift I will use the more expensive batting but the less costly goes in the other quilts.
Have a great day. Dot
