Another Have to Share Moment-The Double Windmill Quilt
With permission my dear friend, Jeanneke, has graciously shared photo's of her Double Windmill Quilt. On Friday I shared the Fat Quarter Shop pattern in pastels and white. This rendition is an explosion of color! It is the exact same pattern but the colors make it entirely different. I am a fan of red in a quilt. I think that it is such a punctuation mark for the design. Jeanneke is the quilter who introduced me to the "board basting technique." Here is her quilt in progress. Love it! Please visit her blog for gobs of inspiration. Jeanneke's Blog.
  • color changes this pattern more than I expected, I knew it looked familiar, but just could not place it! Duh!
  • using different background fabrics creates a broken glass-like effect, yes?
  • Jeanneke is Dutch, her blog is usually written in her native language, right now her translator is on the fritz, hopefully it will be fixed soon. 
  • blog friends are the best!

My Double Windmill Quilt is made from a 'Aspen Frost' Jelly Roll by Moda and I did not know the name of the pattern until you mentioned it on your blog, Corinne.
That's why I initially named my quilt 'Retteketet', which is Dutch for something like 'Tatatataaaaa', I think.

I just love the colors in yours. This also tells me that this would also work with a scrap collection because the large negative space in the Fat Quarter example could be varied and create a totally different pattern. Love it.
