The first shipment of fabric for Lilly's Garden Quilt arrived Saturday, right after I'd put Earth Turtles on the quilt frame, so I knew I needed to hurry up already so that I could work on something new and more fun. I don't have the embroidered garden centerpiece for the front of the quilt so I went ahead and pieced the back first. These are 16" pinwheels on point, but instead of putting the blocks in the center and using plain setting triangles I instead made pieced triangles. This added a bit more math and effort but I feel the results are worth it. The fabrics I selected for nearly the entire quilt are wonderful batiks which were very nice to work with. The swirl and the large block fabrics both had more purple in them than I realized from their swatches but the effect works well together. I also think that my choices of quilting threads will pull the tones of this back one way or another depending on the colors I select. What do you think?
