pinwheels!

I was able to get all my pinwheels together!!
I love 'em.
This quilt top...so far....measures 59"x46".
But, I want it to be bigger.
I had planned on adding some concentric square blocks
around the outside of this...
Aren't they pretty?

But, after playing around with these yesterday
I had an idea!!


What if I add a strip of the little triangles around
the border??
Yes.
I like it.

Guess I'll be cutting some triangles this weekend.
:)

And....
look at what I found languishing at the thrift store.
A little unfinished project.
The decorative stitching is all done...but that's it.
I had to buy it.
50 cents.

Don't you think it will make a cute pillow?
Me too.
