Barbara’s Tarnished Windmill

img_5290I’ve been a bit MIA lately. I did a bunch of sewing for myself, one of the quilts I did never got pictured, went back to BC for a funeral… I’ve been busy is what it is.

But, I did finish Barbara’s quilt last weekend!


Barbara bought my Tarnished Windmill kit and made it in a class at Quilting From The Heart. Then, I got to quilt it!!! Yay!!! It was fun to quilt because I could do all the parts I like from mine again, and do all the part’s I didn’t like differently.


This time of year it’s hard to get good pictures — it’s always dark, and even when it is light the sun is so low in the sky there are shadows everywhere. So I tried my best, and this is what we have 😀


It took my 3 tries to get something I liked behind the fan blades. Which is pretty rare for me — usually once it’s been quilted, I’m just go with it. But this time I ripped twice before settling on this design. And I’m glad I did, because I really like how it turned out.

That’s Barbara’s quilt! And here is a sneak peak of Leslie’s– which is what is on the frame right now.

  1. Love this quilting and rendition! I’ll be starting my own Tarnished Windmill so this provides some excellent ideas! Thanks for posting Kathleen!

  2. I admire your work very much; have a question about batting: Do you generally use a double batt? Depth and detail is exceptional here on Barbara’s quilt and I am wondering about batting. Thanks and Merry Christmas ! Lauretta Smith

  3. You are so far above me in skills that you are far, far, far away in a galaxy way far from earth. It was a treat to see what exists out there, far from this planet. Amazing that you still speak English. Wow!!! Teri

  4. Love Barbara’s quilt. So much interesting stuff going on! Your quilting design is just perfect for the quilt adding lovely texture. Such a talent you have Barbara. Can’t wait to see what you do to see what you do with Leslie’s. Love the feathers you’ve shown
