This quilt started out as a 'what should I do next once I finished my last string quilt. It is my favorite quilt I have eve made but it did sort of take a lot out of me. I needed an easy one this time. I found this picture in a McCalls quilting magazine.
I loved the simplicity of the pinwheels but applique is just not my thing so I ditched that. I also tweaked the saw tooth border to be slightly more interesting.
I opted for a modern twist in the borders where the flower applique was in the pattern.
This backing fabric was sitting in my stash and I thought it balanced the front quite well.
