Pinwheel Quilted

I got a little bit done this week. I have one of the scrappy pinwheels from the rainbow scrap challenge all quilted and the binding is nearly done. I have one side to go and then need to sew down the label and this one is ready for the washing machine. I just did straight line stitching on this one to outline the blocks and sashing.

We postponed our trip to SeaWorld for the Christmas Spectacular today until next Sunday. G and the boy are not feeling 100% today. We'll stay home and make some Christmas sugar cookies instead. It is always fun watching the kids decorate their cookies with frosting.  Yes, the glass dish got moved before it got broken!

I was able to pin the second pinwheel quilt during nap time and got most of the quilting done. I just need to do a stitch around the edge and then trim it up and put the binding on. I think I can sneak away after dinner and get that one all set for binding later tonight. I'd love to get these shipped out by mid week.
 That would let me get back to my birds in the air which need some black ones to be made still. Any ideas on how I should set this one? Borders?

I also have the Easy Street mystery to catch up on. I have all of part 2 cut out but need to just buckle down and get them sewn so I can start step 3.

I'm hooking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Quilter Kathy's slow stitch Sunday.

You have gotten so much accomplished on your pinwheel quilts. Looks like you should make your shipping goal. Birds in the Air are looking great too. I'm not sure what borders would be best, a rainbow of random length pieces?

Binding and baking...a perfect day!
Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

BEAUTIFUL Rainbow quilts! Awesome.
I suppose you could do a blue border on birds in air. Then they would be flying in the blue sky ?

The pinwheels are looking great! It's been fun to follow their progress. For the BITA - a relatively narrow border of white followed by a larger border of blue? I'm not sure on the size, but if you don't need extra length/width it might look great with just a binding.

Wow, quilting, sewing, baking cookies with the kidlets... sounds like an amazing day! Your quilts are gorgeous.

You are a busy gal! The pinwheels look great. I love the birds in the air blocks. They look great just the way you have them.

Those are both so pretty!
