This is (finally) for my little niece Storm who at 27 months is due to move out of the cot into her big girl's bed! I am almost ashamed to admit that is is made from the leftovers of my pinwheel table cloth I finished in January. It had all started out as a Moda Jelly Roll, you know the ones that look like a humongous lollipop? I just had to have that :-) The pinwheels were cut at 60 deg angles out of pieced jelly roll strips, and there were heaps of leftovers after. I pieced the leftover triangles into rectangles, put them into a tessellating pattern with white blocks added in (that's the ones with the appliques hearts and flowers). They again formed pinwheels! I added border after border (still using the leftovers!) to bring it up to a single size and appliqued her name on. The batting is polyester, I had forgotten how slippery that can be! I have put a post on my own blog and will include some more photos soon, too, so come over and have a look how it all came together.

|The quilting was inspired by Christina on A Few Scraps - to me it feels like some of the beautiful little weeds that creep up fences|
Probably my quickest finish to date, it took 13 days from start to finish - so why post it here? The bag with leftovers had been in my WIPs / UFOs for yonks, and the quilt I had started for Storm last year has turned into my own (still not finished) QD9. Regardless, I love all you gals company in getting through my UFOs!!!!
