J-5


Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 13
Method used: hand piecing

John Jacob's Windmill was another block that I have been avoiding, thinking it was going to be a nasty one to piece, but it turned out to be effortless.  I did adjust the rounded bottoms of the pointed pieces to make them more like the original.

I really like the scale of the design in the red fabric you used for the center and the 4 pointy parts. Looks great close up and from a distance.

You've done a beautiful job on this one, and (as always) the fabric combination is wonderful.
