Windmills – No longer a UFO!

I finally managed to complete a project that began as blocks for a charity quilt! The Block of the Month was scrapped, and two orphan blocks became UFOs ( unfinished objects, for those uninitiated into quiltese ) rescued to be made into cushion covers.

I have used Jaipur ‘Dabu’  fabric ( which uses a  traditional  mud-resist hand block printing process).

A tutorial for the pinwheel block is available here. It is adapted from a quilt pattern published the Better Homes and Gardens quilting series.
The other flying geese block is adapted from a 6″ block from a 1860s quilt by Salinda Rupp, popularly called the Nearly Insane quilt.
