Japanese Windmills

 A couple of blogs ago I posted some pics of these gorgeous Japanese fabrics that had arrived into the store.....
This week I put together this busy quilt top 
Selecting three tonal elements... Background, dark windmill blades and windmill centres
The method is as simple as string piecing then cutting 45 degree angles
The result was these Japanese Windmills which is a bit of a departure from my normal improv style quilts... However I enjoy the combination of colours and the movement that this design creates....
