Pinwheel Baby Quilt

I rushed to make this pinwheel baby quilt for my grand niece. I was after a free ride to Australia for the blanket since my brother is heading there. Well, it's currently stuck in Indonesia and will hopefully reach my grand niece by New Year. 

I finally busted out the fabric I got in Ginza, Japan a few years ago. I wanted to use it for a special baby, so I was ecstatic when my nephew and his wife had a baby girl. The sashing and binding fabric is from Singapore and the wadding from Australia (yes, I used to hoard stuff from abroad whenever I got to travel). I thought about my Mom while I was choosing the color for the sashing and eventually asked for my son's opinion. Sweetie said it looked like a quilt my Mom would put together. 

Here's the tutorial:


floral fabric
white blender fabric (with vines)
apricot solid fabric (for sashing and binding)

36" x 52"
pinwheel is 8" x 8"
