Pretty Pinwheels

Well, I took about every shortcut possible quilting up Pinwheels, but it still took a while to get it all done.  

I just used diagonal wavy-lines for the pinwheel portion, stripes for the inner border and I was *not* about to outline-quilt each and every one of the 'piano-keys' so I just stitched a few lines on each side - just enough to tack it down.  Then machine stitched the binding.  Finished size is a bit under 45"x60"... a good lap size / baby quilt.

The backing - ugh.  I'm so lazy sometimes.  I didn't even check to see if it was all lined up properly before I started quilting it.   Oh well, maybe slanty quilt backings are the new 'modern' technique. ;)

I think the backing has just enough tilt to look like you meant it to be that way. I like pinwheels!

Love it! And yes, a total nod to the "wonky" quilting!
