Pinwheels...nearly a top

Worked really hard the last few days to get this much done on the pinwheel top...I do love Kaffe in pinwheels!
I made this up as I went along...no pattern, so I'm very pleased on how this is turning out.
The corners were a bit tricky, but once I figured on how to do the first corner, the other three were easy...
Just a thought.....I have made my pinwheels spin anticlockwise, I have noticed most other pinwheels I have seen are turning clockwise...not that I think it matters, but was wondering is there a right or wrong way for these....
Now for the borders... not sure how I will do them yet.

Beautiful sunny day today...hope you have a good one....♥

  8. I think your pinwheels look great they way they are. Very eyecatching. I don't think it really matters which direction they go in.

  10. What a beautiful pinwheel quilt. I can't wait to see it finished. I don't think it matters which way the pinwheels go. The colors are wonderful.

  11. I think the quilt top is looking fab. I love on point setting and your skinny sashing is just perfect. Perhaps a skinny border of sashing fabric +/- cornerstones and then a beautiful Phillip Jacobs floral. Anyway, now you are up to the fun part.

  13. Gorgeous pinwheels Julia! I love how the Kaffes look on the light background. I think it's calling for a border of a Kaffey fabric.

  22. Pinwheels are so pleasing. They make lovely quilts. Yours are set really nicely.

  23. The top is bee-u-tee-ful!! In the US we say "counterclockwise" - I love "anticlockwise"! I guess you could say that the pinwheels are going Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere!

  24. The direction of the pinwheels may explain why I thought it looked a little different .... but still very lovely!

  25. Lovely...colorful and lively.

    I've never thought it made a difference which way the pinwheels spun so long as they spun the same way-my beginner students often have trouble with that and now I even like them spinning in different directions!

  28. I think it looks awesome! ...but, can someone please explain to me what "spinning" means, I mean I understand the word, but I've been looking at the quilt & I can't see it. Maybe I'm just too uneducated about all this stuff. :0(
