I designed this quilt for the Pat Bravo Minis Blog Tour this spring. It featured fabrics from Pat's latest collections, Dare and Essentials II. We were given a selection of fat 1/8's to work with.
I have been exploring blocks that create a secondary design for the last few blog hops I've participated in, and this quilt showcases one of those designs. When multiple blocks of this 3" x 3" design are set together, it creates the whirling and twirling design in the finished quilt. I shared a tutorial for this block here.
The blue pinwheels in the final design reminds me of the many windmills that have dotted the western Kansas landscape for 100+ years, while the pink blades reminds me of the wind turbines that have graced that same landscape in more recent years. I love this photo with the wind turbines in the background and the shadows that highlight the quilting.
For the backing of this quilt, I pieced together some of the extra fat 1/8's that I didn't use in the design.
Thanks for letting me share this quilt again and for stopping by to visit!
