Just a little announcement... because I'm totally excited!! I FINISHED all of my 25 pinwheel blocks for Rachel's Pinwheel Quilt Along!!! The final 4 I wrapped up tonight! *Squeeeeeeee!!* No, I don't need a bag to breathe in....yet. ;)
The last thing I need to do before the sashing is to make my mini pinwheels (min pins). Again. Yes, again. I had already made up 10 of them and then a few days later (in the shower no less...this seems to be where I remember everything I forgot) I realized that I had used the wrong background fabric for them. If that's not a "hityourselfontheheadreallyhardlikeadork" moment, I don't know what is. So....tomorrow I need to re-make all 16 of them. Then...she's ready to be pieced with sashing...be still my heart. :)
I'm trying to figure out how to quilt this thing. It's my baby and I don't want to ruin it and I'm not so established in the actual quilting part. I thought about straight line quilting it every 1/2 inch, but with it being nearly 80" square, I might just be totally whacko for attempting that. I mean, that's like 160 lines, 80" long..EACH. Yipes! I could squiggly line quilt it, which I would need to practice because I'm not so hot at that either, so even though straight lining it would take a great deal of time, I know I'd like it better.
Do you think straight line quilting it would look good? All suggestions greatly appreciated! :)
This is the part that is going to stress me out the most, but, I'll cross that bridge when I get there! For now, I will revel in the excitement that all my blocks are done and I am head over heels in love with all them!!
