Windmill Quilt Block

Windmill Quilt Block

Having spent last weekend in the Windy City of Chicago, I was inspired to make a Windmill quilt block for the weekly video demonstration.

This block has a pinwheel in the center, and with the design around the pinwheel, your quilt will have a fun secondary design – if you sew blocks together without sashing.

Penny’s Postcard Posse is Rounding up fabric postcards for the 4th of July. We’d love to beat last year’s Roundup total of 1,223 fabric postcards.

Remember, there are still thousands of troops over there protecting citizens like you and me.

They love getting our fabric postcard greetings, and it doesn’t take much time at all to sew one together. You can create these little treasures while you are watching TV or waiting for an appointment.

I’ll be posting more free patterns for you at:


After playing with fabric and quilt block patterns, I am still undecided how to proceed with m. mouse’s 15th birthday quilt.

You’ll see some of the options when you reach the monthly news.


Several of you asked for more details about sewing strips together to make triangles, and this week, you’ll see exactly how to make the triangles, as well as some of the quilts that can be made.
