TA DA!

Not a good picture I know as there is no where in my house to lay out a quilt this large and be able to get far enough back for a whole shot. When it gets back from the quilters I'll get someone to hold it up for me so I can get better pictures.

I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. My pinwheel borders that were supposed to float in the background kinda get lost as there isn't a lot of contrast in some spots. But I like it and will love using it on my bed come this December.

Now that's a pretty Pineapple Blossom!

Oh, Nancy - it's simply lovely! The floating borders look fine. I think the variety of contrast is what always makes scrappy so great!

Patty said...

I just love your quilt. The colors are so pretty. Anything with red is to my liking !

Sandra said...

I love this pattern. The floating pinwheels are beautiful - and don't worry about the lower contrast, that's what makes them sparkle :-)

Carolyn said...

Your quilt turned out beautiful! I love the pinwheel border and the red inner border and binding. Great job!

Bonnie said...

It's WONDERFUL! And I love the addition of the pinwheels..they remind me of confetti!

Nancy, I love it and am glad to see what you did with the pinwheels. Very creative and effective!! It's like they are dancing in the border. Fun!

Samantha said...

hooray on finishing- it looks great!

Dee said...

Awesome. I must remember to make my borders with blocks as you did. This quilt is a real keeper!

Nancy: How did you get that done so quickly? It's so pretty!! The red borders really set it off and I think your pinwheels show up nicely. You wouldn't want them to overpower the pineapple blossoms.

I love it, that border is just terrific! I love the way the pinwheels are only in the corners. & I like the way some of the pinwheel baldes "get lost" and how the whole border floats....

All in ALL you did a great job!

Great quilt! I can't believe it is a scrap quilt - it all looks so contained. I really like the double red borders and the pinwheels are a nice border touch - I've GOT to work on spiffing up my borders.

Glad you are feeling better.

Cheers!
