Pinwheels everywhere.....

Finally!! I feel like this is my first real quilt!! I made it all by myself. I didn't get it started and then give up on it or get bored with it and put it away to never be touched again. I mean of course I wouldn't do that ;-)
I am so proud of this one, but it's for sale. I can't believe I am selling it. Danny can't believe that I am selling it. I don't know why I am selling it.

This is my first pieced back and I like it that way!

I kept showing Danny the back and mentioning how pretty I thought the back was and he asked me if I liked the front!!!!

Details: 1. Pinwheel pattern (of course I am hooked on pinwheels but enough already)
2. Windham True Madder fabrics (in my favorite reds, so why am I selling it?)
3. 100% cotton fabrics, backing and filler fabrics are a faint paisley print, white on quilt and tan for backing
4. Cotton batting
5. Machine pieced and quilted with a free motion maze pattern using greater than 1200 yards of 100% Cotton quilting thread in white with just under 20 hours quilting time (I need a long arm quilter)
6. Hand stitched (with love) binding

Tomorrow morning I will try to get some good pictures and get this in my etsy shop and we will see if it sells.
(don't tell anyone but I won't be upset if it doesn't)

Now that that's finished.....on to bigger and better things like planning my Thanksgiving feast!!!!

It's beautiful!! I'm really suprised you are selling it too, but maybe you can get a good down payment for your long arm quilter.

I love it! Yeah, I can't believe you're selling it either.
I'll bring the ham! :)

You've got more of what it takes than do I; the thoughts of selling a quilt makes me queasy! I can give them away but selling's like selling a part of me.
Hope you get what you want for it; it's a very beautiful quilt.
