Sunkissed Pinwheels

If you follow me on Instagram (and you really should;-) you've seen this one slowly coming along.  It started as a way to use up bonus triangles from the Strawberry Fields quilt I started on retreat (still unfinished while I source more low volume fabrics).

It's really monotonous densely quilting all these straight lines in the sashing.  I tried to just work on it section by section whenever I had some free time.

In the end it was worth it.  I love the way it emphasizes the chevron pattern!

I don't usually work with orange but I love how cheerful this quilt turned out.  For now I'm using it as a table topper and I always smile when I walk by the dining room and see it.
