Windmill quilt top

How to sew a windmill twister quilt top

This gorgeous quilt top is a day project using a layer cake. Who doesn’t love a layer cake. A layer cake consists of 42 10″ squares from one fabric collection. This means that they all coordinate and that you have a selection of large and small print patterns. Pre cut bundles like layers cakes are a great way to patchwork as you get all the variety of the fabric prints without creating a huge stash after! (Mind I do quite like a stash!)

You’ll be asked to sew your squares at home before you arrive. Don’t worry we’ll give you full instructions but this will allow you to take time to lay out your squares and not rush this vital step. We can then start work during the workshop on the windmill technique to create these visually stunning quilt tops.  Despite its sophisicated finish this is suitable for a beginner.

You will learn basic patchwork skills including rotary cutting and machine piecing.
