    3D Pinwheel

    So I decided to try this and it was a lot of fun. Now that I look at the picture I am thinking I need to add another border. Make it bigger. Also has anyone made one of these. I feel like I need to tack down each blade at the right of the fold. It lays nice but it just seems like that should be tacked down.

    That really looks lovely. Another border would make it pop. Is it bulky in the middle with all the extra fabric?

      It's not to bad. I think since it can't be quilted I will sew buttons in the center of each one to hold them down

              I put a contrasting yo-yo in the one I made. I had thought about buttons but decided to try out the yo-yo maker that i had never used.

                I like bakermon's idea of the yo-yo, and like the idea of a second border, too! LOVE the look though.

                it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                  very nice 3D pinwheel, your button idea as well as another added border is great.

                    Somewhere I saw a tutorial for using this tool to make a pacifier leash. Thought I bookmarked it but no, can't find it.

                      Okay, I'm new to this quilting. I wonder how you put another border on after you have trimmed the batting and backing? This would have helped when I made a panel piece and cut it out before realizing it needed additional borders to make it more balanced.

                        I would lay the new border on the top of the quilt(right sides tog.), raw edges matching. then pin the back border and the batting piece on the back, matching edges. sew and press the new borders away from quilt. your dand wich would look like this:

                        new border
                        quilt
                        backing strip
                        batting

                        If you've ever done one of the 6 hour quilts using kaye woods it would be the same idea.

                          I haven't done the batting and backing yet.

                            I have thought of trying this out and I think I just found my inspiration. Thank you Patrice! It is wonderful!

                              Love your quilt and the button idea. I also think an additional border would be great! Very nice work....Barb
