Pattern windmills by night will not download
Do you have other free pattersns? This one is awesome!!!
what if i want to make it into a king size? then hom much fabric would i have to get?
If I was going to make it larger, I would multiply the original numbers by 3 for a full size quilt. If the pattern calls for (2) of that square, then Id make (6). There would be six additional squares that Id have to make in order to get the 42 squares needed for full size. I would just pick my favorites.This could translate to 4x for Queen, and 5x for King, with a few extra that you would have to make up.Hope that helps. I try not to go too big with these beginners patterns in order to give those that are new to quilting a project that doesnt overwhelm.The original pattern used 5 different black prints, 5 different white prints, and 10 different red prints, and calls for 22" of each print. Multiply that by 5 and you should have enough for a king size. Hope that helps!suzy
I am unable to download my pattern
Love this design! Has so much movement!
Just have to sew the binding~~done in blues and yellows....just magnificent!
Wow. Would love to see!
Thank You, just this pattern , Have been collection blk & reds.
I would like to use this pattern to make a blue quilt. I have looked at the directions for cutting the strips instead of using the jelly rolls, but cannot determine how many different fabrics I will need to get and how much of each fabric. I would like to make a queen size quilt. Thanks for any help you can provide.
The square themselves are laid out in no particular order. I just moved them around until I found a look that I liked. The only thing to keep in mind is that you want to alternate light background and dark background. (If that makes sense). If I was going to make it larger, I would multiply the original numbers by 3 for a full size quilt. If the pattern calls for (2) of that square, then Id make (6). There would be six additional squares that Id have to make in order to get the 42 squares needed for full size.

Multiply that by 4 and you should have enough for a queen size. Or in the case of say a three color queen size- you would need about 4-3/4 yards of each of the three colors.Hope that helps!suzy
I would love to make this Queen Size it is a great pattern for my son. Thank you so much.
Hi! By my calculations, you would need a total of 4 of the black and white jelly rolls and 4 of the red jelly rolls to come up with a queen sized quilt measuring 88 x 100. That would be (7 ea.) 12 blocks across, and (8 ea.) 12 blocks down, with a 2 sashing all around. (That is a total of 56 ea. 12 squares).If you decide to go even larger, 8 blocks across x 9 blocks down = 72 blocks, or 6 of the black and white jelly rolls and 6 of the red jelly rolls.suzy
This is just fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing it.
I would love to make this quilt in Queen Size for my nephew.
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
I can't find the cutting and sewing instructions. Help!
Do you need 2 jelly rolls of 20 strips so you have 2 of each strip or is one roll of 40 different strips OK?
Either one would work fine!
I don't use jelly rolls, but these quilt patterns are perfect for scraps. I make baby quilts from scraps for charity and to practice free motion quilting.
