Hello Everyone,

Peruvian Pinwheels is quilted! I decided to keep it a little elegant, but still simple.


I wanted the pinwheels to be accentuated and not lost, so I only did feathers on the inner border.


Then I did 1/4 inch echo quilting around the pinwheels and the inner body.


I used matching thread so as not to detract from the pinwheels.


And stitched in the ditch between the inner and out borders, leaving the outer border alone.


This is a photo of the back. I think it looks pretty cool.


And it is perfectly centered. A few of you asked me on the last post how I keep it centered. The answer is that you have to do a lot of careful measuring when piecing the back and then again after it is loaded onto the long arm. With a little planning and measuring it really comes up quite nice.

Now the binding is half sewn down by hand, so hopefully I will have some pictures of that soon for you.

Don't forget... ALL Westminster Fabrics are marked down to $7.15 per yard through March 11. We just received 100+ NEW bolts too!! Just click here to begin shopping.

Until Next Time...
