Feb-Windmill Block Of the Month.

windmill block

I saw this on Ebay about a month ago  and thought to myself what an interesting block using 1/2 sq triangles.   I finally had some time to make one of these… and just love it!!    Using 2.5 strips of fabri your block will finish at 8 inches before adding other blocks.

Hope you enjoy making up a few of these Windmills and using them in your next project.   I’m thinking the color  Blue & white would make a stunning quilt.    I don’t have enough fabric in those two colors right now.  But There is room in my closet for more fabric..soon!!

Here is a quilt I found over at Kim big quilting adventure dot blogspot dot com.. Isn’t it worth sewing up a windmill or two??   DSC02375[1]

  Happy Sewing everyone.. and check back with me for more ideas on how to use those HST….   Granny
