    After watching a tut on making half square triangles by sewing all around 2 layered blocks, then cutting them into quarters by making an X through them, and ending up with 4 half square triangles, I just had to try it! Needless to say, it was great fun working them up so fast and simply said, that's where they turned into a pile of UFO's. Time marches on and I saw a windmill quilt somewhere, don't recall when or where it was, but I decided to make larger windmills with my "angler" to put the smaller triangles to use. I continue to practice free motion quilting on my Husquvarna Designer SE- some day hope to have some sort of long arm. Also, to try a new (to me) technique from here on the board, I added the flange to the edge of the quilt, and just finished it up this morning! Another UFO done!

    Thanks so much for posting this. I really like it and I am in the process of making up a quilt top using all pinwheels. I thought about it this morning and thought I should set them on point and make more blocks to make a reversible quilt and quilt as I go. I'm going to try your method of making the HSTs. it sounds really easy. I really like the way you did your quilt - it looks terrific!

    I cut 1" strips of the light purple, sewed them end to end on the diagonal, then folded & ironed them in 1/2. Next I machine basted the folded strip with it's raw edge along the quilt edge (a bit less than 1/4" from edge). I then put the binding on as usual, machine sewing from the front, and hand sewing to the back. It wasn't hard at all, just took a little extra time, but the day I did it, I was in the mood to try somthing different for this quilt. At first I wasn't even going to have a border, just was planning on binding it...

    I love your quilt and it's my favourite colour. I have to make a purple quilt for a young woman I know and she loves purple. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. The gentle curves of the quilting really add to the motion of the windmill blocks. Great job!

    I LOVE pinwheels and I love this quilt!!! I did the same method of making pinwheels on my last quilt as you did on yours and it was awesome to see how quickly and nicely they turned out. Well done!!!
