I won! First project: baby pinwheels

I won a few things on the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

The first prize to arrive was this:

a charm pack from from blank pages....

All lovely!  It doesn't quite match the baby's things, and I haven't been sewing for myself much with the option to sew for babies, and it's so fun I don't want to sit around waiting for something to strike me as the right project, so... I have a friend with a baby of as-yet-unknown gender on the way, and the parents aren't too worried about giving a boy things with pink... so I think I'll make this:

the Windy Days Quilt found over at Moda Bake Shop.  I love the scattered nature of the pinwheels and that they're different sizes - looks more random, while still being orderly enough to suit my engineer-brain, and not "wonky," which wouldn't suit my engineer-brain at all.

But with a dark background instead of the white - both makes it a little more modern, to suit the recipients, and much more stainy-baby-friendly!    

A bit of my own stash for one or two of the bigger pinwheels and I should be ready to go!
