This quilt began with leftover fabric I used to make some centers on Propellers and Planes. I'd set them to the side while deciding whether or not to keep them. But as I was sorting my stash, more fabrics appeared that just went with these wild things.
I don't know what came over me: the fabric seemed to magically fall into place and the top was done in a day.
I wrote about the quilting at the bottom of this post. Several quilters posted photos with something similar. They were so lovely but didn't include instructions so I made up my own method. Here's a close up of the tightest section of the curve quilting.
|Top left corner of Windmill shows |
the curve quilting with the smallest radius.
In the opposite corner, the radii are the largest.
|Bottom right corner of Windmill |
where the curve has the largest radius.
Another idea that struck me from other quilters is using leftovers for binding. Here's mine. I really like the black/white/red diamond print both as binding and in the blocks (see the second photo.)
|The double fold binding is made from any |
fabric in the quilt that was leftover again.
Cut 2.25" wide by whatever length was available.
Enjoy the day, Ann
