Quixote

Considering it’s September I think we better get some of those market quilts up here, don’t you think? What better way to start than with Quixote. Isn’t it spectacular?! Brenda wanted to capture the whirring movement of windmills across the fields. The blocks are a mix of everything. A little Zen Chic, some V and
