I love it. It is probably one of my favorites. And there was a big snowfall, so everything was looking so pretty outside.
I bound it in coordinating colors. I think it brings the quilt together so nicely.
I did pebbles and arcs in the pinwheels, back and forths in the middle parts, and echoes in the white sashing. I realized there was a long arm ruler after I had quilted all of it...it probably would have been easier to use than my cardboard templates. But the templates worked fine, especially since everything didn't line up perfectly. I did a lot of ruler work on this quilt and feel like I'm finally starting to get the rhythm down a bit more.
This is also the first quilt that I put an official tag on! I always tell people how to wash the quilts, but I'm not sure that it sticks. So I have a tag with my name and the washing instructions.
Finally, I made my first pillow with the scraps using this tutorial.
It was a gift for a friend's daughter. While most of the fabrics are unique to hers, there are some orange fireflies that are also on her brother's quilt. I'll admit, I probably wouldn't have done that except that the orange was just perfect. (Of course, I don't have a close up of the fireflies.) I've been told that her brother's quilt has suddenly become more popular now that they both have one.
