    This project developed from the tute posted on here by Toomuch fabric so thanks for that! I made the pinwheel blocks and the folded squares reminded me of prairie point construction so I made some of those too ! Then the pinwheels made me think of those brightly coloured foil kids' windmills on sticks that I used to be bought as a treat at the seaside when I was a child - my local beach was pebbley hence the pebble quilting around the windmills and the ribbons in the outer border are just blowin' in the breeze! :mrgreen: It's 32" square and designed to be a wall hanging. The title means 'red windmills' in French. :-D Oh PS, thanks BW for most of the fabric! :-DANd I'm sorry the pic is so rubbish!

    Love your pinwheel. The design in the red fabric actually makes them look like they are turning.

    Thank you, I liked the curves too! But hadn't exactly spotted that effect, though I see it now you point it out. :-D I also thought the pattern of the fabric was a little like beach balls but maybe that's too fanciful! 8-)

    This is a wonderful quilt. I love red, and your pinwheels are just fabulous.
    The images and associations in your work make this a very special memory quilt. The very best reason to make one!
