Flowers and Pinwheels

A showstopping floral border was the inspiration for the color palette of this bright, springy quilt. Framed Pinwheel blocks keep the breezy feel of the original project, and tone-on-tone prints provide a blank canvas for quilting. Fabrics are from the Garden Splendor collection by Wild Apple for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Quilting designs courtesy of Handi Quilter.
