Behind the Scenes with Modern Quilt Studio
Windy by the Lake
A blustery wind seems to keep the windmill blocks on this throw constantly in motion. Bill and Weeks say the complex geometry of this block lends itself to color variations that dramatically alter the look of the quilt. They always recommend making a test block to make sure you’re comfortable with the colors you’ve chosen and the techniques involved.
