Pinwheels ready for quilting

My June Bride: Rehearsal Dinner Pinwheels are ready for quilting.

Cold weather, snow, and a kitty cat not quite up to his normal little self to worry about gave me a lot of time inside to do the piecing of the red and blue border. My outermost blue border is actually a dressmaking cotton, cut somewhat larger than necessary. Making the last border extra large gives built-in insurance against the quilting taking up some of the required size, though I'm using a batting with less loft than I usually do, so it should not be much of an issue.

It's a happy little quilt - I think I like this one a lot! Now I have to figure out my quilting plan. This is the first quilt I've made in a while that was not designed specifically to feature quilting. I'll probably still do something elaborate-- it will just be secondary to the piecing design.

Oh, and the vet did not find anything obviously troublesome with the kitty this morning - that's quite a relief!

It's a happy quilt because it's RED. I love it!! Can't wait to see what quilting design you decide to use.
