When I pieced Pinwheels and Lollipops, I started getting ideas of how it should be quilted, and I knew I wanted to feature ruler work for the quilting. Pastels were used in the quilt because I wanted something light and airy. When finished I knew it needed a border with scallops and I took several months searching for just the right color of fabric for the border. When I look at the quilt I am reminded of childhood things like pinwheels and lollipops, hence the name.
