Santa Cruz Pinwheels Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This picture is when it was still in progress, but I am proud that I used several of the techniques Wendy discussed -- stitch-in-the-ditch around the pinwheel blocks, free-motion hearts (and half-hearts) in the solid blues, and outline/echo free-motion quilting in the blue/white print border. I also used Wendy's quick binding technique and loved how it turned out (but not pictured here). What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give free-motion quilting on your home machine a try! It is a lot of fun and satisfying to know that you've completed an entire quilt by yourself. I gave them this completed quilt as a gift and they loved it.
