basket medallion sew-a-long first border, pinwheels (childhood)

The Gwen Marston style medallion sew-a-long continues!

Lori at:

started the medallion sew-a-long with the theme basket for the center.

Cynthia at:

chose the first border theme--childhood.

Hence, pinwheels!
I have a few more to make to finish the round.

chose log cabins for the next round. Hmm.

I am using clearer colors than I usually work with and am loving the light look it gives.

Very nice! The pinwheels look great with your center.

I debated about using pinwheels too but only briefly as they really didn't work with my overall theme. Yours are perfect for your basket. You have a darling quilt in progress.

This is very pretty and the clear colours work so well: they give it a kind of simple, happy feel.

Your pinwheels are so cute and charming! They're a favorite childhood toy, and they go so well with your sweet basket. I love your colors too, they're so happy!

I think pinwheels are a perfect choice for the theme of childhood. I like your choice of colors, too.

Everyone loves pinwheels. I had a few of them in my childhood years. Good choice for your first round surrounding the medallion center.

Perfect border for your simple, sweet center.

Oh, I did not see this post until just now. The pinwheel blocks are gorgeous. What a great idea.
