WIP Wednesday Week 29 - Finished Pinwheels!

Well I started this blog to inspire me to actually finish projects and it worked today! At the start of today I still had a metre of binding to hand sew down and I thought, hey its WIP Wednesday Helen, better do something so you can blog it. So I sat on the couch this afternoon as the girls were glued to Bindi the Jungle Girl and finished it off. So this WIP Wednesday is a finished item!!

All started here, when we meet Elliott, so 2 months this one has taken. Embarrassingly enough we have not seen the little man since this day. Last time we visited he was asleep, now the quilt is done, we'll have to visit when he is awake!

Not too sure about the white binding, but too late now to change that and no other colour would go. Just nice to have finished it. You can't see the swirly quilting in the boarders in these shots though, but it is there! Better shot in this post here.

You make the most amazing quilts Helen - what a lovely gift. I too like the white borders - they really bring the colours out, especially in the centre panel.
