If you have ever wanted to explore a little improv in your quilt making, but long for the safety of a step, by step pattern, this quilt is for you! My "Windmills and Silos" quilt is made from easy to construct off-kilter, half square triangle units, and wonky strips of fabric bordering them, creating a sense of fun movement and energy!

Quilt pattern is fully illustrated with step-by-step instructions. Written in a clear and friendly conversational tone, with helpful tips for your sewing success!

Skill Level: Confident Beginner and up.

This 16 page pattern Includes:

~ List of tools and materials needed.
~ Yardage and cutting requirements
~ Tips on preparing and cutting your fabrics.
~ Complete step by step and fully illustrated instructions on block and quilt top construction.
~ Information on basting, quilting, binding and sewing on a hanging sleeve.
~ Helpful tips for more sewing and quilting success.
~ Printable "Windmills and Silos" Quilt coloring page, so you can explore different color combinations.

Pattern directions are for the 36" x 36" quilt size shown, which is my favorite size quilt to make, as it looks great hung on a wall or slung on a table, (so lovely with a pretty vase of flowers on top!) It’s also a wonderful size to wrap a baby in, and perfect for a little one to drag around and snuggle with! This size quilt offers quick satisfaction and works great as a platform for creative exploration. To assist in that exploration, I have provided a handy "Windmills and Silos" coloring page at the end of this pattern, for you to print out and fill in with your own different color combinations.

Pattern is available only in English

NOTE: This pattern is very similar to my "Raise the Barn Roof High" pattern in terms of construction. Color and block placement is what gives it a totally different look. If you enjoy this method of quilt design, you will be sure to enjoy my "Raise the Barn Roof High" pattern as well, which you can find here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/192950405/pdf-quilt-pattern-raise-the-barn-roof?ref=listing-shop-header-1

The instructions are very clear and easy to understand, and making the bead was so fun! I love the finished bead that I've made so far - it's adorable!!

This is a tutorial that is well written AND beautiful. I've started my first wrapped stone with linen scraps and variegated embroidery floss. The satin stitching is quite meditative. I hope I can update this review with a photo later :)

This is a fantastic pattern. Beautiful step-by-step photographs and written with a gentle voice. I love it. I had it printed in color on 28lb. paper, which I highly recommend if, like me, you prefer printed patterns over reading patterns on a computer screen.
