Zahra's Quilt

Well, here it is. I've finally finished Zahra's quilt. It's not the greatest quilt. There are plenty of mistakes but as my husband so kindly pointed out "That's how you know a human made it and not a machine." Anyway, she loves it and that's all that really matters, isn't it?

For those quilters out there, this is not a standard size. It's about 50x60, I think. (I can't remember for sure right now.) I try to make my quilts big enough to snuggle under but small enough to drag around so it's bigger than a crib quilt but smaller than a twin. The pattern is Pinwheels and Paddles. I don't remember where I found it but I changed the pinwheels to black instead of white to make the bright colors pop.

This is a lovely pattern - just like windmills. The children are gorgeous! Enjoy your shopping trip and take a pic of all your new fabrics :-)

Don't apologise for the mistakes. Your hubby is right - precision is for machines.
The quilt turned out wonderfully. I love the bright colors with the black. Good job.

Hi Shellie, I love the Pinwheels and Paddles. I think you did a great job! I'm wondering if that pattern isn't in the Thimbleberries book? Seems like I have seen it before also. I like the size..makes perfect sense to me..*VBS*
