Windmill Quilt Design:

The block consists of four squares, each consisting of two small triangles and one large triangle. First make two squares and sew them together; then make two more squares and sew them together.

Now sew these two sections together, and your block will be completed. Set the blocks together as shown in the sample, alternating with solid-color blocks quilted with an attractive design.

When cutting fabric, allow for seams.
