Pinwheel and Charm Quilt

 My Pinwheel quilt is all done. I have not washed it yet and can't wait to throw the whole quilt in the washing machine and dryer to get soft and crinkly.
 I used every little leftover piece of fabric. I used the last few pieces of fabric in the border.
 It's always nice when I can find a matching piece of fabric for the backing. Even though this piece of fabric is dark it has the same type of teal blue flowers.
 Here's my charms sqaure quilt all quilted.
 I used that panto "Bubbles".
 In the picture below you can see I put two of the same blue fabric charms next to each other. I think it makes a quilt even more interesting if you group some colors that are the same together.
 I put an off white border on the edges. Now it looks like the squares are floating.
 I'm almost done with my Happy Hour quilt for my son. I really like the blue world map fabric.
 
 Here's some leftover strips for another project.
 Here's the quilt I'm busy binding.
 Happy Quilting,

They're all gorgeous but I'm also especially drawn to the charm square quilt. I like the bubbles quilting pattern too.

These are all beautiful. I would have a hard time choosing a favorite. As always, I love to see how you've quilted them. Just perfect!

Millie, these quilts are great, but I'm especially drawn to the charm squares one. The bubbles quilting is so beautiful and really seems to set this one off!

I really like the border on the first quilt. All of the quilts are great. And after reading this I feel like such a quilting piker.

Great job on the quilts, I love the top two quilts very pretty! I haven't stopped by for quite some time and you always have something beautiful in the works.

Your quilting really is very lovely. I like the way you put the squares on point...gives it an entire new look. I think I may go use a couple of my charm packs. I only have 2 of Strawberry Fields but I think I can find enough matching fabric to cut up enough for a 3rd pack. Love your blog
Blessings
