pinwheel quilt

Today I welcomed niece #5 into the family. R gets a little bit larger quilt, mostly because I didn't bother with really counting stuff out until it was already cut.  When I realized how big it would be, I just went for it because I had everything already.  The pattern is Patty Young's Houndstooth quilt.

In each of the gray pinwheels, I free motion stitched a heart with an R inside of it.  In the corner, I signed my name.  Otherwise, all quilting is stitch in the ditch around the pinwheels.

The pictures don't do it justice.  It is a beautiful, bright colorful quilt.  I used a dark gray for the binding, and bright "firework" print for the pinwheels that aren't as solid.
