Warm Windmill

As mentioned, I started working on Windmill blocks. Last time, I talked about this project, I was sewing all the blades together. I realized that I had TONS of blades, so I shifted gears. I have enough blades to make at least two quilts. I decided to make a warm version first. This will consist of red, orange, yellow, pink, brown, beige and any mottle fabric that reads ‘warm’.

I wanted something easy to sew together. Despite the angles, my idea worked. I can eyeball how to put the patches together so they sew up into a square.

Since I started cutting greys, I made the background grey so the foreground fabrics stand out.

I think this will be part of the Niece-phews project.

  1. That red fabric looks so pretty Jaye, and although my favorite is blue, warm colors are on the top of my list too 🙂 I can’t wait to see how the quilt tops turn out.
