I am having a lot of fun making this. I cut my own strips as it is hard to get ready made ones where I live. I am using my first few for a table runner and I'm making an extra large quilt for my husband in green and gray.
Hi Kitty! I'd love to see it when it is done!suzy
I see someone is selling the pattern for $4.99...sigh
Hi Vermont! As the designer of the other pattern in question, I just want to point out that my pattern originally ran in the Winter issue of Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, which was on newsstands beginning January 2013. I just wanted to put that out there so people realize I did not copy any other design when designing my pattern. Nor do I think that this designer copied me eitherthis is a traditional block that anyone can put their own twist on! I have no problem with another similar pattern being out there for free, especially since this quilt is at a different size than mine and uses jelly rolls instead of fat quarters or fat eighths, as mine does. So I hope you'll extend me the same courtesy for my own pattern. Thanks! : )
Yes, the pattern is a traditional tessellating quilt block, which you can find on many different quilt block sites. My twist was the use of color to create a windmill design. Also, the use of jelly rolls in multiples of black and white prints, creates a unique display. :)
Another one added to my must do list. Love the color theme.
A friend and I bought strips enough to make two of these but twice the size. We plan to donate them to the local VFW to raffle. We are trying to get the Vietnam memorial wall to our local city and the money raised from our quilts will help. I will try to post pix.
I would love to see your finished project and would definitely feature it on my website! suzy
I can't find the pattern for cutting and instructions for sewing... Help!
Hi. To the right of the quilt pic should be a box that says "add to cart" . Click on that and it will show that you "bought" it for free. Then you should be able to download the pattern and instructions. If you haven't already, you may need to join Craftsy. Hope this helps.
My Mother made this quilt during WWII and it was spotted and the MPs came and asked to inspect the quilt and her home. They thought it was a swastika. She had to hang is color and windmills turned over until the war over!
I love this, I have bought some lovely spring fabrics which I will be making this from. I will be making it twice the size to go on my bed. Fingers crossed. I will post a picture when I finish
Would love to see it! suzy
Thank you so much for posting this!! Love the colors and the design is simple and AMAZING!!!
Love this quilt and choice of colors and fabrics. Might have to buy the kit for myself.
I don't normally post comments, but for this quilt I just had to.I loved the look of this quilt so much I purchased the whole kit from Discount Sewing Supply as I wanted mine to look just like the picture. I'm a beginner, and I made the quilt top in 2 days. All I have to do now is add the backing and bind it. I could not believe how EASY it was to make. The pattern looks really complicated, but it was rated for a beginner and believe me, it was just that. This was my first time using jelly rolls. I'm HOOKED..Thank you Suzy6281. Your instructions are clear and simple to follow. I really appreciated all of the pictures you included in the pattern. I could tell at a glance if I was making a mistake. I'm now going to make your Summer Jewels quilt as well.QuiltyQuilts
