Pinwheels and Stars Baby Quilt

I can finally share pictures!  Yeah! Super busy get ready for Christmas time and go visit family vacation time is over! Yeah!  Not that it wasn’t fun, I’m just very, very tired. 

Now, I get to share pictures of one of the cutest quilts I have ever made.  Yes, I love it that much.  And yes, I gave it away to my super, awesome, big sister, Steffanie.  She is having her third boy (good luck with that) and totally deserves to be spoiled.  So here it is, ‘Pinwheels and Stars’.

Little Things Baby Quilt

The fabric line is “Little Things”.  I bought a fat quarter bundle, so I have just enough to make a throw quilt for myself. Grin.

I was inspired by this adorable quilt I found on flickr and knew I had to make my own version for my sister.  When she pinned the original quilt onto pinterest  (after I had started working on it) I knew I had picked the right pattern!

One of my favorite parts about the quilt is the back.  I put some extra time and effort into quilting it and ended up with this…..

Quilting on Pinwheels and Stars Quilt

To quote Doctor Who, “I Know!”

Didn’t it turn out brilliant?  I’ve never done 1/4” shadow quilting on both sides of the seam before.  Let’s just say it took awhile.  But the finished result was worth it.

Now, I just need to wait a few more weeks to see my new nephew bundled up in it.
