Tips

For best results, use two different colour fabrics of similar value, for instance two light fabrics or two medium fabrics.

The quilt has two visual interpretations depending on whether you focus on the windmill pattern or on the negative space of the quilt, which is a bracket shape.

In the 15 page pattern I have included lots of diagrams and written instructions, traditional templates, foundation piecing templates, colour scheme suggestions as well links to 3 of my video tutorials.

A million thanks to the testers who helped make this pattern great.

I hope you like my quilt and enjoy making it.
