Baby Girl's Breath of Fresh Air

Nothing says summer better than colorful pinwheels and bright flowers. I made this for my daughter's bff recently when she knew she was having a baby girl. This was also done is boy colors for my grand nephew. You can see it by clicking on this link: Summer Breeze Pinwheels

I used a loopy pattern to quilt it to look like breezy swirls. Click on the picture to see a close up view.
The dresden plate flower in the middle captured my heart for summer. I am so smitten that I have already started another lap quilt with these bright summer colors (for me!) with a variation of dresden plates, grandmothers fans and mini pinwheels. Can't wait to finish it!! Oh and my youngest wants one for her birthday :) Those squares are all cut, prepped and ready for assembly. That one will be a surprise. I better get crackin' since her birthday was the end of JUNE!! I know, I know.........but you see, the summer has been the best we've had in years and the beach keeps calling my name. AND I started back to work this week after being out for 8 months because of my car accident. Lots going on. All good.
