Pinwheel Party finished

Here is the finished quilt which has been too long in progress. Once I had finished the quilting I couldn't find the binding. Once the binding was located neatly put away in my cupboard it was quick to apply as I had already pieced it together with a diagonal seam from leftover jelly roll strips. I like the effect of the pieced binding.

Fabric: Lovely by Sandy Gervaise for Moda
Thread: Valley of Kings
Quilting pattern: Blustery Breeze

The quilt is made of two blocks with contrasting colour choices from two identical jelly rolls.

I used some more leftover jelly roll to make a feature of the join in the backing and added an embroidered label made from an extra block.

The quilt pattern is almost complete so finishing it is my next job as well as quilting Val's third charity quilt. I have also finished a quilt for Jenny and one for Lorraine. I will share photos once the bindings have been added.

I also need to get ready for an open house on Sunday 23 and Monday 24 October. Further details will be available next week.
