Merry-Go-Round Color Option
Nautical Pinwheels Quilt
Novelty prints take Merry-Go-Round from the amusement park to the beach. Quilt tester Laura Boehnke made pinwheels pop by using the same navy blue print and crisp white for the large triangle-squares in her four-block quilt. She fussy-cut bottle cap designs for the 2-1/2" sashing squares. If you’re having difficulty coordinating fabrics, start with a multicolor print, such as the faux pieced plaid Laura used for the outer border, and use it to help select prints. Fabrics are from the Going Coastal collection by Emily Herrick for Michael Miller Fabrics.
