I had designed this quilt as a sampler of my 5th year of quilting… a couple of years later the top was done, then another year, and I decided to tie it as a finish, instead of quilting. The top did have the pinwheel side borders, but while tying it, I ended up removing those borders as I saw too many mismatched centres on the pinwheels which made the quilt a bit too narrow for its length. I entered it into the local fair in the tied quilt category. It won 1st place.
