Pinwheel Baby Quilt

Jessica also made this adorable pinwheel baby quilt.  

I used a couple different designs from Eva Larkin's book 'Free Motion Quilting Made Easy'.  I picked two similar designs-keeping the simpler one in the plain block.  Because those little critters are pretty cute on their own!

The pieced blocks made spacing a triple scalloped border a cinch.  I added a loop in between, tying in the loop element in from the blocks.  The only marking I did was a dot in the center of the plain blocks, and another dot about 1.25" over and down from each corner to mark the start of the loops.  That's it!

And, Oh Man--the Back!  I had no idea the two designs together would look like this!
