Graham's Pinwheel Quilt

We got somewhere between 11 and 14 inches of snow yesterday! 

Quilting rulers are very useful for this sort of thing.

So I decided to take pictures of quilts, of course!

This was a Christmas present for my son Graham.

It's a simple pinwheel pattern and measures 48" by 64".

The backing fabric is a colorful stripe fabric given to me by a friend a number of years ago.  I pulled colors from this fabric for the quilt top.  This is another foolproof strategy for picking out colors for a quilt!

I quilted it with an allover loop-de-loop pattern.  It was my first time quilting this design and it won't be the last!

Here's a shot of the label.  Always label your quilts, people.  Always.

Enjoy your weekend, whatever the weather may be :)
