Fourth of July pinwheel quilt

I finished up my Fourth of July pinwheel quilt just in time to take it to the local fireworks display – hooray! My kids happily curled up under it, which pretty much made the evening for me.

This quilt is made up of 20 pinwheel blocks (tutorial here) and stipple quilted. The solids are Robert Kaufmann Kona, the backing is a gray batik and the binding is a red and white chevron of unremembered origin.

I’m quite taken with this quilt, despite (or maybe because of?) the fact that all solids and high contrast is unusual for me.

Hope you all had a fun and festive Fourth of July!
