Ohhhhhhh My...

GOSH!!! This fabric is beautiful! Cathy over at Quilting On Turtle Hill was having a giveaway and...I won! Pinwheel blocks and coordinating fabric. It arrived today and I am ecstatic! The pinwheels are perfect and this fabric...WOW! Thank you so much, Cathy! Soft colors & pinks are not usually my first choice, but when I saw them, I thought they were absolutely scrumptious! And, they are even more so in person! I cannot wait to make them all into a quilt!

Okay, all you quilters...any ideas on what to do? Feel free to chime in.

The pinwheel blocks are 8 1/2 inches, and there are 24 of them. I could make 4 square blocks with the other fabrics. 48 blocks would yield a very nice lap quilt...48x64 inches. Or, I could make more pinwheels...would need to buy some white fabric. Decisions, decisions. How fun and exciting this is for me!!! Entirely different and new! A few projects to finish up first...but then this just may be the next in line!

Lucky you and the pinwheels already made, lol.
I think using the floral prints in the alternating blocks would make a nice look for a larger quilt and be easier.
