Mary’s Poppin’ Pinwheels

Mary was so concerned about the 3-D pinwheels on her quilt and whether or not I’d be able to quilt around them.  Well, if I were using a pantograph, I wouldn’t be able to quilt it, because the design wouldn’t work with the pinwheels.  But, since I was quilting a freehand Edge to Edge (E2E), I was able to work around them.

It was a large quilt.  Can you tell?  You can see a close-up of the pinwheels here.  I wonder how she put those pinwheels in there so they’d pop up like that!

The swirly quilting is supposed to emulate wind blowing.

So, of course I had to add a cloud with Mr. Wind blowing.  Okay… I know… Well, I TRIED to make it look like a cloud blowing some wind.

Well, it looks better on the back…

Okay… fail on Mr. Cloud, so I decided to add some kites.

And, you can see a couple more surprises better when you look at the back.

I love doing Edge to Edge quilting.  It’s so much easier for me to sneak stuff in.  😉
