on the design floor

I spent some time today making more blocks for my 'pinwheel on point' quilt. Deciding on my inset triangle border took a bit of time. Initially, I was going for a neutral border, as I wanted to keep it all light & breezy. I trialed a few options, including a selection of alternating medium tone-on-tone grey fabrics and then a Kaffe grey & white funky stripe called 'regency daisy'... but things still looked a little lost... and let's face it, a little boring! 

 I finally settled on an Art Gallery teal floral, 'signature' by Sharon Holland. 

All righty 
- after a bit more of a reshuffle to up the contrast a bit more - 
I'm happy and it's time to get these pinwheels up off the floor and all stitched together

Until next time, Linda


  1. Gorgeous! Love the choice for the border triangles. Happy stitching it together.

  2. I look forward to seeing this one finished. Loving the teal floral.

  3. That floral is a stunner... although I liked the grey prints too. Each option highlights different pinwheels and I think it really does come back to personal preference.

  4. Loving that teal. A wonderful choice.

  5. Your pinwheels look great and the teal floral is a totally unexpected but PERFECT choice. I'm in love!!

  6. Oh! I never would have thought of using that large floral - and look what I would have missed! It's such a perfect choice!

  7. Ooooh, wonderful scrappy blocks. I enjoyed seeing every picture.

  8. Your decision to use that teal print around the outside of the quilt is spot-on. It looks really good, and is a nice accent to the interest created by all those scrappy prints. What a nice job you've done!

  9. Teal for the edges of the pinwheel blocks was exactly the right choice.
