Pinwheel Baby Quilt

Here is the finished baby quilt I pieced using the tutorial from this previous post.  It went together quickly, days ago in fact, but I was too busy with outside chores to post it!  The garden needed to be tidied up and the fields were getting overgrown!  Now that I have made some headway with the yard work I can spend some time on the blog too.......
I haven't someone in mind for this baby quilt yet but it can join the pile that is rapidly growing in the sewing room.  I sometimes have a hard time letting them go.  I love them all so much.  Greedy, I know.......
The  photo is a little off on the colors.  It is much brighter in person.
I machined quilted on my regular sewing machine.  I am gaining confidence and the more I do the better they turn out.  Which is good cuz a longarm does not appear to be in my future anytime soon......  I quilted a wind like pattern with swirls and gusts (humor me) blowing across the quilt.  How else would you quilt a pinwheel baby quilt?  Check back later for another "windy" quilt.
