Pinwheel progress

This project is starting to pick up steam now that I finally pieced all of my triangles. I was able to pull out the ones on the edge that were neutral - that was a royal pain in the you know what! They are not so perfect any more - but I am not going to stress about it.
Here is the progress in pictures:
The yellow and the burgundy flower print were added.
Here I added the two bright Kaffe Fassett prints.
Here are two strips I have completed so far. I think I will complete all these side ones until I am level with the original sample quilt, then stitch them on and carry on the whole length.
Good progress I think so far - only sewing for an hour or so last night. There is still so much to do!
I know its hard to tell in the picture, but do you think I should move that bold blue pinwheel in the upper centerish corner? Can you tell which one I mean? I think it stands out a bit too much maybe - oh I do not know, but its the dark blue with the Kaffe Fassett blue circles.
I would love to get your input on it!

  1. It does, but so what? Unless you are looking for a very flat quilt, it looks great. One thing I will mention and you probably already know it, but it will be quite bulky where all the points meet. So be careful when quilting (sometimes the sewing machine gets caught). Some quilters suggest different ways to iron these areas so that there will be less bulk. Good luck, it looks beautiful.

  2. Is it already sewn in? Maybe make another blue one for the other side of the quilt - bottom left of the picture. If it were me I would have to make another pinwheel or move it because I have to have things balanced. I wish I were more like Talin's Corner and just leave it. OH and I almost forgot to say I just adore all these prints together! Oh they are just wonderful and this is a beautiful quilt!!

  3. OMG you are making great progress. I love the mix of colors. You have to look and then re-look. I do agree that you need a tiny bit of blue on the left of the bottom photo. Even it out a bit.

  4. that's looking so good. the colours are great. i do agree that one more pinwheel in the blue towards the bottom left to 'balance' the quilt would look good.
