Pinwheel Party

This quilt was a pattern I tested for The Quilted Cardinal nearly two years ago. I never fully assembled the top because I didn't like the navy blue bits in it, and I knew it would take me considerable time to rip it all out; and as I've said, I hate ripping. So I stuck it in the cabinet, and it became a UFO.

Several days ago when I was considering what I might like to accomplish in my sewing room this year, I decided it was high time to get this quilt finished. This is what the quilt looked like before I removed the navy blue. While I was at it, I decided to take out the dark green too and a piece of red in one of the center pinwheels that seemed distracting.

Here is the quilt now with the first border attached, and I like it so much better. The last border will be a crazy pieced border, and then it will be ready for quilting.

Your ripping paid off, don't you think? That's going to be really pretty when it's finished, Sue.

Your revised version is wonderful and I do like it better than the original one. I must admit, all that ripping and resewing would have kept me from making any changes. You are a trooper!
