Pinwheel Sampler Quiltalong Finished! ... and a Chicago pic.

I have completed my pinwheel sampler quilt from the p.s. i quilt quiltalong. I used Flora and Fauna by Patty Young for the patterned fabric and a burgundy color for the solid. The solid actually matches the dark color in some of the daisies of the patterned fabric. I really love bright colors and this fabric is just beautiful! It seemed especially appropriate for pinwheels since they are just fun. These were my first ever pinwheels and there are some not so perfect points, but I am still happy with how it turned out. It was a fun project and I loved seeing everyone else's projects in the flickr group.

This is the front. I made setting blocks so my pinwheels would be separated a bit and to make the quilt a bit larger.
And the back. My extra pinwheels fit nicely here. And I just have to say again how much I love Flora and Fauna! Wonderful colors!!
And here is a random picture of Chicago just for fun. I was there on business a few weeks ago. Beautiful city!
