Borders and Pinwheels

Blue Feather Quilt Studio   designs and hosts quilt alongs using your Accuquilt dies.  My project evolved from her last quilt along called Borders and Pinwheels.  Her designs are always lovely and fun to participate in.  She is also on facebook.

This is my 'Borders and Pinwheels'  quilt.  It finished at 55 x 63.  It has cotton batting and backed with a heavy fleece.  I used the fleece just because it was the right size leftover and the right color.  Truthfully it was difficult to move around smoothly on my Janome sit down machine.    I started it in May 2022.

 and here is the view from the back........ my favorite side.  I am mostly a block by block custom quilter, so it is quilted to death.  I used Glide threads on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin.

I'm joining these linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing.

  1. Congratulations on a beautiful finish. The quilting is really gorgeous!

  2. Thanks for the reminder of Blue Feather Quilts and all the cool Accuquilt info she has. I joined the Facebook group after the Spring 2022 instructions. I was mentally set to do the one going on now until I realized it would make a huge quilt with my 9" cube. So, no new quilt right now.

  3. It is a beauty and the quilting is awesome. Congrats!!!

  4. Pretty quilt! I love how you quilted it. I tend to do all over designs, but now you've got me thinking of block by block. So pretty on the back too! Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  5. Very pretty and nice you had the perfect backing!!

  6. What a cool quilt!!! and seeing the quilting on the back - SUper cool!!! I love it!!
