Bloggers Quilt Festival #1

For my first entry in Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival I'd like to show you Scrappy Windmills.

Nine big 20" blocks hand pieced over papers then machine quilted by my friend Julie Clarke.

As you can see it's a riot of fabrics featuring lights, mediums and darker ones for maximum impact.
There are 72 blades in all these blocks and a massive 168 x 1" hexagons!

It was a lot of fun to make, mostly at night in front of the TV. It's amazing what you can do in a couple of hours each night.

No block used a great amount of any fabric but it was a delight to go thru the scraps and find the perfect piece!
Thanks Amy for running this again. Hop on over and check out all the categories and find some new blogs to look at.
I'll be posting my second entry tomorrow.
