Pinwheel celebrations

Hello again - I hope you've all had a good week - I have managed to complete Oona's quilt - and am quite pleased with it -

I shadow quilted the pinwheel shapes.
Using the Big Shot and Strip die 658328 I cut 6 strips of orange stripey fabric for the binding.
I just have to slip stitch the binding to the back of the quilt and maybe add some quilting in the borders, which are 4 1/2" wide.
Now I'm going to make another quilt using the same die - to make a quilt with elephants on it for Abi, big sister aged 3.
I was going to make a quilt for Eve who is 5 but she has just started making her own quilt - photos and progress reports to follow!!
as for progress on my sewing room - the sorting and tidying still continues - but I am going to try re-organising before moving room - it will be so much quicker !
today I've been to run 2 workshops at Oh Sew Sweet Shop nr. Barnsley - / - we had a lot of fun -
 and of course I had to buy some fabric!!!
That's all for now until next week, enjoy your weekend.
