Here's my completed Windmill and Flying Geese Quilt. I had a great time using my just my walking foot to quilt it.
I especially like what transpired in the large rectangles of negative space. There are 3 rows of symmetrical stitching 1/2 inch part from the base of the block extending upward to the center of the top. The block still looked too empty with just the 3 quilted triangles. So I added a single triangle pointing downward which meets the point of the inner most upward pointing triangle. The asymmetry this creates reminds me a bit of designs from the Prairie School from the early 1900s.
This is a fun quilt to make. I'd like to try it again with some bold bright solids.
