I recently ordered Anita Grossman Solomon's book "Rotary Cutting Revolution" after reading about it and her quilts in a previous issue of Quiltmaker magazine.
I'm having SO much fun with her "No Waste Windmill" pattern! Cutting out 56 blocks 8 at a time was a breeze; only two cuts per stack! :thumbup: It took me longer to settle on a pattern for all these Windmill blocks, lol.
Piecing is a breeze, too. No hassle, practically no pinning, just have to watch my patch orientation. It's going pretty quickly, too. I have two rows completely done and working on a third.
I'm also very pleased with these batiks from connectingthreads.com. They washed up super nice and are a joy to work with. Again, no hassles there, either. Wow. How fun to finally work on a project with no headaches!
This quilt is going to be for our 8th grandchild. When our DIL was talking about how active this little guy is in her tummy, I got the inspiration for this windmill pattern. Thanks, Anita! :thumbup:
"Life's a Breeze" for upcoming grandson
