How to quilt this very geometric quilt? I wanted to do something round to counteract the points, but also wanted to incorporate some of the triangular shapes. I made up a new motif that I’ll call ‘Windmill’, ‘cos the ‘blades’ are shaped like those on windmills seen across the farmlands of Australia. It starts with a central arc, surrounded by the windmill blades, then a really big arc to encompass the motif.
