Pinwheel Princess

My baby quilt was published this month in McCall's Quilting and it made the cover!! It was a goal of mine to be a cover girl someday (my quilt, that is) and I'm so thrilled with how pretty it looks.
I originally designed this quilt for my grand-daughter, Madelyn. We had to get a few photos with the inspiration baby. If it wasn't for this little one I wouldn't be a cover girl!



I've been piecing backings with left over fabric from my quilts recently. Makes the back look kinda special.

The original quilt in mostly Heather Bailey "Pop Garden". I really like the aqua and reds, which in the right fabrics would make an awesome baby boy quilt.


You can see the article on the McCall's Quilting website.
