Two weeks without sewing is a really, REALLY long time for me. As a result, I went on a quilting binge and whipped this quilt together in the blink of an eye–just in time for this boy’s monthly picture. (You can see the full year of his monthly pictures + free printable month markers here.) When I look at this quilt, I see a sea of spindly pinwheels reminiscent of the fields of wind turbines so characteristic of my new home here in West Texas.
I set the blocks on-point. That’s new for me. It was a fun experiment.
Fabric is Mind Your P’s & Q’s by Keiki for Moda. I used 2 charm packs (84 squares 5″ x 5″) but you could also substitute 7 quarters for a less scrappy version. I used Moda Bella Solid “Scarlet” + Robert Kaufman’s Yard Dyed Flax in “Linen” for the wind turbine shapes. Binding is Moda Bella Solid “Grass.”
I managed to convince him to sit still for a second but he seemed to be bored.
Update: This became my North Wind quilt pattern. It’s available in the shop as a PDF only.

When I look at this quilt I see 'Renzo climbing a lattice fence, trying to get to the pretty behind it! So cute! This post made me smile . . . especially the part about the ham hocks :o)
