Pinwheel Quilt and some more Blocks

My pinwheel sampler quilt is now all together and just needs to be quilted. I am wondering about adding a border, just to make it a little bigger.
Then the big question......
How should I quilt it?
Why does my cat always come and sit on my quilts when I have the camera out???
This block is for the Jelly Roll BOM I am working on.
These are all the blocks so far.....
I love how different these blocks have been.
These stitcheries are for this months Gardners Journal quilt-a-long.
Which I put together yesterday.

Hope everyone has a wonderful, productive weekend!

I just saw a quilt that was quilted with circles and more circles, and those are on my mind at the moment. Are you planning a one fabric border or a pieced border? It lookes lovely, and my cat can't stay off my fabrics, either. I had to use the lint roller before I took photos of my klosjes the other day, because she left plenty of evidence of her visit! But we love them anyway!!!

Pretty pinwheels! I better get a wriggle on and finish my next GJ block!

Everything looks fantastic Teresa. Gotta love those Patisserie fabrics. Very pretty fabrics in your GJ block. Do you have much of the pinwheel fabric left? A small piano key border could be nice with another border of background fabric on the outside.

You've been very busy! Quilts are like cat magnets, it's impossible for me to tie my chenille ones without a cat trying to climb on it! And I think the quilt looks good as it is :)

Your pinwheel quilt has turned out great Teresa. Our cat has long gone to heaven, but whenever I spread a quilt out on the floor to pin, there he was, straight onto it. Cats and quilts seem to go together.

Hi Teresa, Your pinwheel quilt is adorable and I bet you would be real pleased with the results of it. I see you have a little inspector with four legs and a tail checking out the stitching. Kind regards, Anita.

It's cause the quilt isn't meant to be the center of attention - they are!!! Ours love diving under the sheets and doonas as we're making the bed! Or trying to cut fabric...
Love the pinwheel quilt. A border would look nice! Something plain that matches the colour scheme.
And where's the lady bug in the finished block? I can't find the lady bug! It's looking great!

Your jelly roll quilt is turning out nicely and I love your pinwheel quilt. Make it bigger? It depends on what you want to do with it...
