Windmill {a finished quilt and tutorial}

cover

Hi all! I’m happy to share my latest quilt Windmill. You can also find a tutorial for this quilt on the Moda Bake Shop today.

I designed this one for a cousin who is getting married in August and I am actually delivering it to her at the bridal shower today πŸ™‚ The colors in this Tapestry line by Fig Tree & Co. are so gorgeous and I think they will fit nicely in the newlyweds home.

Oh I love her!!

The blocks were a lot of fun to make and when I put them all together, I just fell in love with it! I have a feeling I will be making this quilt again in different fabrics and probably even bigger. As it is with 16 blocks, it measures 64″ square.

I tried a new free motion quilt method on this quilt. It is a leaf type design (I guess!) and although it is FAR from perfect, I think it looks nice now that it is all washed, dried and crinkly.

Thanks to all who requested a tutorial on this block! Moda agreed and were happy to publish it on their blog. I’m such a lucky girl and so blessed to have wonderful supporters in all of you.

Thanks so much for visiting,

  1. I love your design and fabric choices. It’s warm yet airy feeling – I guess that’s why you named it windmill. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the tutorial. I plan to make this quilt. Great quilting too!
