Happy Tuesday! I'm here to share another quilt with you! Now before you start thinking that I'm crazy productive or something, let's note that I made this particular quilt in the summer of 2012! I have been having a pretty productive month, but not quite that productive! This is another one of the unshared projects that I'm trying to get posted before the end of the month!

Clearly I took these photos quite a while ago too! We haven't seen the grass here in ages.  I think we've had snow on the ground constantly since the end of November. Anyways, onto the quilt!

This quilt is the result of a virtual quilting bee turned book! It's called Stacked Windmills and can be found in Modern Bee Book - 13 Quilts to Make with Friends, published in October 2013!

When I designed this quilt I was in the middle of the Half-Square Triangle Block of the Month and so I had half-square triangles on the brain.  As a result, these blocks feature them too.  I was on quite a kick! I really still am, I think they're great.

I used a favorite sheet for the back.  It isn't vintage, but it was thrifted!

I think this quilt would make a great scrap buster! I'd love to make another someday, if only there were more than 24 hours in a day! If you'd like to learn more about this book, the other quilters, and the other quilts, I recommend checking out the website dedicated to it, here! You can find the book in bookstores, quilt shops and of course, on Amazon.

Happy Sewing!

  4. Beautiful! I really like this one! I have an aversion to all of the trimming involved with HSTs but I love the final outcome.

    1. Paige - you need to get June Tailor's HST squaring up ruler for HST's! Seriously they are so much easier to square up than using the squares. http://www.amazon.com/June-Tailor-Half-Square-Quarter-Square-Ruler-10-1/dp/B001TL2JIA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1390964099&sr=8-1&keywords=june+tailor+half+square+triangle
