What are you most proud of? That I managed to match my points exactly using the PPPP method. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy! It's way easier than it looks.

  • I ordered the fabric from MSQC
  • the black and white fabric is from a range called "Tuxedo". I was going to long arm it
  • but I think ditching will make the stars pop even more. I'll post photos once its done.

Q&A with SuziBud

newbieQ asked:
Looks great! I love the stars against the black and white fabric.
SuziBud answered:
Thanks! :o)
Starling425 asked:
The more I see this pattern the more I like it. You have great fabric selection which really make the pinwheels pop.
SuziBud answered:
Thank you. I'm still not sure how to quilt it, except to stick-in-the-ditch the whole thing. Any suggestions?
Starling425 asked:
Consider shadow quilting in the gray and black fabrics. Or consider doing some rays to continue the pinwheel shape idea. Or, the pinwheels have two fabrics. Quilt a third line to the tips to make the pinwheel shape larger.
SuziBud answered:
Thank you! As my kids always say "you're not such a pretty face". I'll let you know what I decide.
Peggy Martin asked:
Wow - I LOVE the fabrics you chose for your Pinwheel Polka quilt! Those black and white backgrounds create a fantastic effect - can't wait to see how you quilt it. I quilted both of mine with over-all patterns, because the fabrics were fairly busy.
SuziBud answered:
Thanks, Peggy.
