pinwheels. stitched by hand

I would loove to claim this quilt as my own.
for a few reasons;
a. the fun bright colors
b. the simple white border, and pink binding
c. it was HAND QUILTED
But I cannot claim this quilt because it was made by my sweet friend Jamie.
And the lucky recipient was her sister.
I think hand quilting really adds some timeless charm to quilts.
I only wish I had the patience, to hand quilt.
I just love her quilt, and wanted to share it with all of you!
Happy Friday.
