Pinwheel quilts hold a special place in my heart. One summer when I was a teenager, I asked my mom if she’d teach me how to make a quilt. I looked through her quilt books and fell in love with the pinwheel block. After picking out some 30s reproduction prints, I made my first ever quilt–a simple pinwheel quilt.
My new quilt pattern, Windy Day, is a fun reminder of my first pinwheel quilt. Windy Day has a bit more pizazz thrown in, though. 🙂 With the blocks set on point and the smaller pinwheels in the sashing, this quilt top reminds me of an array of pinwheels, all blowing in the wind.
Windy Day was originally designed for Quilts and More magazine, where I made an aqua and red Christmas version. To release the Windy Day pattern in my Etsy shop, I wanted to make a more spring-like version and chose the new Riley Blake fabric line Charmed. It features pretty corals and navy blues and I added in Sweet Mint Shabby fabric for the background (also from Riley Blake).
