Design Wall Monday #19

This is what is on my design wall this morning. On the top left is my mini quilt giveaway celebrating my 500th blog post - click here to enter the draw for the quilt and some fabric gifts.
On the top right is my Saturday Sampler block, which looks better on the computer screen than in real life!
The panel (on the lower left) is part of a quilt kit that I bought in Michigan at the Quilted Cottage. I don't buy kits very often but I was drawn to these spring-like floral fabrics and the great price. You can see the fabrics here and download the pattern for free here. The pinwheel blocks (on the bottom right) have been very relaxing to sew. I will make the quilt larger since they were very generous in the amounts of fabric in the kit. Today I am thinking of adding at least one more border with smaller pinwheel blocks and I will definately put pinwheels in the corners of the floral border instead of the blue fabric.
What's on your design wall today? To see more design walls, go visit Judy's blog.

I like the pinwheels. They are very "springy! The colors in the Floral panel are just right for them.

I'm usually not overly thrilled with pinwheels...but yours are really pretty. I love the flowers you've used. And that is a very nice panel. Calming.
