Half square triangles - lots and lots of half square triangles
Although I only used 8 fabrics, so I have a few FQs over.

Left overs from the pinwheels made into strips for one of the borders
Breezy is a bigger quilt than the original, achieved with a few more pinwheels and a lot of border.
Again, the laundry doubles for a design wall
Breezy is for Niece-the-Younger for Christmas.

I did take a full length photo, but can't believe I didn't check whether it was any good before I wrapped up the quilt. It isn't. Wonder if my sister can be prevailed upon to take a decent photo for me once it's unwrapped at the other end?


I'm especially happy with the fabric for the binding.

Binding and quilting

I love the spotted backing, but I'm not sure I made the best colour choice for this quilt - it's not really quite the right blue to match the colours on the front..

Some actions shots of Thomas who provided assistance when I laid the sandwiched quilt out on the bed to try to decide how to quilt it.
