Baby pinwheels

This cute baby quilt was brought to me by my client "Joy". She also brought in the pattern because she wanted it quilted as closely to the sample as possible.
I stitched in the ditch on the small pinwheel, and quilted a square on its side around it. The block itself is also stitched in the ditch. The big pinwheel blocks are only quilted in half the triangles, and are not quilted around the outside in the ditch. In the sashing there are both horizontal and vertical lines, about 1/4 inch from each side. The outer blue border has 2 lines in it as well, about 1/2 inch from the edges, and about 1/2 inch from each other. In order to achieve straight lines, I used my horizontal and vertical channel locks on my Gammill Classic Plus machine.

In the outer border there are flowers quilted in the squares. They are outlined by what looks like a near perfect circle, but are really just arcs on each side of the square.

I think this quilt is so fun! I love the baby boy fabrics she used!
