Scrappy Pinwheel quilted and bound!!!!

I got back to sewing and managed to get the scrappy pinwheel quilt pinned, quilted and bound in three days! Turns out I can do binding in the recliner while the kids are in the room.

I changed my original quilting idea once I started quilting. Instead of round circles in each pinwheel, I just did some flowers with loops to fill in around them. Very basic but I was able to get it done pretty quickly... and with the list of things I need to get done in the next month that was important! I decided to do a scrappy border, something which I've never done before but I think it goes well with this quilt.
I'm off to pin the Vermont quilt now and hope to get started on quilting it this evening after the kids are in bed... if I'm not too tired. Miss Em decided to be wide awake for quite a while in the middle of the night so we didn't get much sleep with her being up off and on from midnight until a little after 4AM. Of course big brother wakes up at 6:30 so not much sleep for me last night.
Happy quilting and we'll see if I can post a completed quilt a little later this week!
