How to Make a Windmill Quilt Block

For a fun quilt block with lots of movement in it, take a look at the windmill pattern from Generations Quilt Patterns.  It has a center that is a bit tricky, but all in all it is not a difficult block to assemble.

Depending on the color scheme used, this is a striking design.  I particularly like the hot pink and white that the author used for her photos.  It really packs a punch.

In the tutorial you will find measurements for 3 different sizes which is helpful if you need a particular size for a design you are working on.  The method used for making the half square triangles is an easy one that produces two at a time.  That makes quick work of this block.  You will also find step by step instructions for assembling the block that include photographs.
