My third new quilt pattern this year is called Summer Breeze. Colorful pinwheels spin like whirligigs in a warm breeze. Grab your favorite mini charm pack and some coordinating fabrics to create this cheerful scene, all wrapped up by a dancing ribbon.
Summer Breeze finishes at 26 1/2″ square, making it the perfect size for a seasonal wall hanging or kitchen table topper. In my sample I used a mini charm pack of “Aria” by Kate Spain for Moda. I love the saturated colors that Kate uses in her collections.
The ribbon effect is achieved by selecting two greens that are the same color tone, with one being a few shades darker or deeper than the other.
I added mismatched buttons to the centers of my pinwheels, giving each one a little spinning anchor! In these closeup photos you can see the beautiful custom quilting by Nancy Jolene Quilting of Danube, Minnesota. It’s just perfect!
If you are interested in purchasing Summer Breeze, please visit your local quilt shop or one of my blog sponsors who are carrying the patterns. You can also purchase paper or electronic patterns on my Etsy Shop. Quilt shop owners: wholesale information is available here.
Remember, if you make any of my patterns, please tag me on Instagram or Facebook. I love seeing other quilters’ interpretations of my patterns!
