Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

As I've been surfing thru the internet lately I've been noticing quite alot of Windmill quilts being created. I suddenly had a light bulb moment and realized: "I have one of those!"

I made this scrappy windmill about 8 years ago and I titled it "Persistence". Each block is 4" and there are a total of 400 blocks set 20 x 20. I did have some help from my freinds who donated 6" squares so I could keep it as scrappy as possible. I keep this quilt on the bed most of the time now but, I am in the process of making a new bed quilt. Persistence will have an honored spot on the quilt rack!

I would like to add that the dear hubby is behind that quilt, on a step stool, being very patient as a snap several pictures! The man has the patience of a saint!

You sound like me, I have so many quilts I forget some of them. Purchased one at an estate sale this last weekend. Yours is beautiful; scrappy ones are my favorite Jackie

4" squares ! YOU have a lot of patience too! It turned out TERRIFIC. I imagine the delight and satisfaction of sleeping under it every night - wonderful accomplishment.

I really like that quilt. How do you choose which block to put where? I've never been good at that.
