This is the quilt I made for my mom’s birthday. It’s the Pinwheel quilt from Emily Cier’s Quilt Remix; I made the crib size for her because she likes her feet to breathe. 😀

I used fusible thingydoo to attach the circles before stitching around the edges, which I think made the red background appear through the white fabric a lot more than it might have without. I used a dice to figure out how far apart to quilt, but then it looked too sparse so I added extra lines in between. I tried having invisible thread on the top and brown cotton thread in the bobbin, but I never got the tension quite right because I could see little brown dots on the quilt top.
