I finished the pinwheels quilt this weekend. It feels like a fresh breath of spring. Perfect for this time of year.
Most of the fabric is from the Erin McMorris Weekend collection that came out last fall. As with many fabric collections in quilt shops - they sometimes seem to sit around until a sample is made. So I finally took it upon myself to no longer let these pretty fabrics sit idly by. Threw in a few other prints we had on hand including some of the new Sunkissed collection by Moda.
this tutorial from the Riley Blake Cutting Corners blog. I really loved the tutorial for making the pinwheels. She has a slick method. I changed a couple of things - made it bigger, made a solid border, etc. I also changed the method for the solid block on point because I didn't want to have any fabric waste. You could do either method. Here's the notes for what I changed:

Kits for this one should be available later this week at American Quilting.
