Summer Windmills

Happy solid orange, cheerful solid turquoise, and bright polka dot white combine to make Flying Geese units. When arranged around a center square, the units look like blades on windmills rotating in a summer breeze. Fabrics are from the Wallflower Waltz collection for Michael Miller Fabrics.
