Midwinter Red - pinwheel in a churn dash top is finished!

Honestly I have to find a better name for this quilt!
I have been referring to it as the pinwheel in a churn dash - but while descriptive it is a mouthful!
 I finally got the borders on, so now she is a completed top.  Still a bit rippled in one corner, because of the bias edges of the blocks.  But not as bad as I had imaged it might be.  That is code for "hope it quilts out" verses "I am too embarrassed to send it to the long arm quilter!"
My quilt hanger is away, so nothing but terrible photos  - sorry about that!  This quilt is a decent size at 82 x 69" so I had to buy a backing - nothing in the stash is sufficiently large (or red) enough.  A quick trip to Quilters Harvest (Warracknabeal) and I got this print on sale!
Happy days, another flimsy finish and another UFO near completion.
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. I think you need to send it to your quilter, I bet she has seen worse, and of course, she can quilt it out!!

  2. Lots of beautiful reds in this lovely finish. I am sure that the "corner problem" will disappear.

  3. Looks wonderful! Did you make this with the disappearing pinwheel method from Missouri Star Quilt Company's tutorial, or did you use traditional methods?
    You could call it churn wheel. : )

  4. it looks great Sue.... perfect backing for it...


  5. It's a wonderful patten and it will feel good to have another quilt finished. You used so many fabulous reds.

  6. Just pop this one in the mail to my house please.......
