Dancing Pinwheels

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.

I love pinwheels! This quilt is so pretty! I love the scrappy-ness of it and the quilting is amazing.
