Top Finished

I finished the Pinwheel Party top late last night. I like how it turned out, and I'm really happy to get it done. I am hoping to quilt it on Sunday and get it bound next week.

I sew the crazy pieced blocks and borders on a foundation, and I usually use one of my light colored uglies as the foundation--good way to use some of them up. These borders take a long time for me to do, and they can be a little tedious. So I amused myself by adding a few selvages along with the scraps. I wish I'd thought to do it much earlier in the process. I would have added them to all the borders and the crazy pieced pinwheel blocks too. As it is, they're only in the top and bottom borders.

I really like this one too, and agree that the border is perfect. Great fabric choices too.
