Connecting Threads No-Waste Windmill

Would you like fabric with that book?

Karen Johnson interviewed me and, together with C&T Publishing, set-up a generous giveaway to celebrate my No-Waste Windmill Quilt.

I cut the above Windmill blades from stacks of  8" Connecting Thread fabric squares with a technique on mine. I don't use a template, I don't need to read the lines on a ruler. There is no wasted fabric. And it's unbiased. The edges of each block are on the straight-of-grain!  I took these two photographs of my CuttingLines™  pattern during its development. The final pattern allows for No-Waste Windmills in any size, with or without cutting through paper.

The actual fifty-eight how-to photographs for the No-Waste Windmill block are in my Rotary Cutting Revolution book. It's one of eight different block techniques.  The faster I cut my patches, the sooner I get to fondle and sew them. What's not to like about that? Alas, there is one correction to the first printing.
