Oh yes, the oft mentioned, but otherwise much ignored, rainbow windmill cushion cover top has finally been pieced! I used the Windmill block by Lynne which appeared in the Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers book. I photocopied it and then blew it up to fit on an A3 page, making the final block 17″ finished. I added on some borders to make it up to a 20″ square. The rainbow fabrics were all from my stash, and the grey is Kona Coal.
My next step will be to add fusible fleece to the back of this bit and quilt it, but I’m not sure how to quilt it. I did think perhaps of concentric circles, but then thought that may be a bit of a nightmare to mark out… Anywho, I’m open to ideas, what would you do to quilt this (that doesn’t include FMQ, I haven’t had my lesson yet lol)
Hope you all had a good weekend, I’ve been cultivating this bug more, so now I have no voice and a chest infection to boot, how lovely..
I almost forgot, I met my one thing, one week challenge this week too :o)
