What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take you time, don't put yourself on a time limit. I find that I relax and don't stress if I am not on a time crunch in my head! Try it! It is really a lot of fun!! And Peggy is an exceptional instructor! You'll love her course on paper piecing.

haha and I quote: Take you time, don't put yourself on a time limit. I find that I relax and don't stress if I am not on a time crunch in my head! Try it! It is really a lot of fun!! Not sure if this should apply to the comment about "dying to finish" or you are almost finished with a quilt you started in 1997! lol I think we are kindred spirits!

You have a great start on your Pinwheel Polka quilt - those colors positively shimmer!! Can't wait to see the rest of it!

Oh my goodness........this is so beautiful. Love the colors. You should be proud to have it all done. I have the same course and am anxious to start it, BUT have had a splint on one hand for almost three months and am supposed to be resting it. LOL Your work is an inspiration to get me going. Just gorgeous. I don't think I need a splint --- just a maid. Like that would ever happen

You're choice of colors and prints is amazing... your block looks like I'm either staring into a pool, or up into a (green) sky with puffy clouds. Love the finished product too!

Thank you Mo! To me it looked like the pinwheel is blowing in the wind with the puffy clouds behind it
