Pin wheel quilt completed

My regular readers may remember my pin wheel mini tutorial here

Well now I have my sewing machine back I have been able to complete this quilt for my dear friend Rosemary.  I started with a charm square pack of Lilac Hill and used the complimenting fabric in the range for the two outer borders and binding.  The cream sashing was from my stash,

Here is a close up of the quilting.  I did loopy 3 leaf clovers on the pinwheels, waves in the sashes and large stipple on the outer border.

I Popped pin wheel cornerstones on each corner,
 corresponding with the four colours used in the centre of the quilt.
 I had to piece the back as I did not have quite enough fabric to fit,
so I used the same fabric a the peeper border with a pin wheel centre.

Its nice to tick another finish off the list.
