Pinwheel Party

My DGD finally got her cuddle-quilt and she loves it !  Perfect timing because she just got her new bed this weekend.  It doesn't fit on her bed, but she didn't care ...

I had to make it bigger than the original pattern so she could wrap up in it.  I added 11 or 12 blocks ... some were repeats with the colors rearranged and 2 of them I just 'made up' on my own.

I think you can see the quilting pretty good here.  I just love the long arm quilter I found .... she is soo nice and did a superb job!

The back is a pretty flower sculptured Minkee pattern.  Just right for curling up with to read a book or watch TV ..... altho it was over 100 here today!! That is uncommonly hot for this area.

DGD has laid claim to the most recent D9P I did last month.  It is all cherry print fabrics and she asked if she could have it for her bed.  I was just playing with the fabric & 2 layer cakes when I made it just for fun.  I already have a taker!

No progress on the Puzzle Quilt .... been working too much again.  It is on the sewing table for my day off tomorrow.  Gonna be a fun day!!!

Would love to hear from you all ... Hugs and love, Joanne
