Spinning Pinwheels


Dance & Movement


For this challenge I used a tradition quilt pattern. I did not have a pattern only the picture, so this was a double challenge for me. The quilt is approximately 25-1/2" X 40-1/2". The picture doesn't do it justice. You have to squint your eyes a bit when you look at the picture, then you can see the spinning pinwheels. I have not quilted it yet and decided not to add any borders to the quilt. I am really enjoying doing these challenges. I've also decided that I will only use fabrics that I already have in my stash for these challenges. All comments welcome.

Wow, Deborah! I like that you have used a traditional pattern to portray movement. Your use of color adds depth as movement as well.
