Chatelaine- Free BOW Sampler Quilt Block 46

This weeks super sweet block is Old Windmill. This is a very easy block to piece and of course its the pinwheels that make me love this one so much; you can never have enough pinwheels :)
In American history, during the early 1900's windmills pumped water for the livestock and the homesteads. They were vital to the survival of all who lived on the properties, so there a quite a few blocks inspired by the humble windmill and I love how the women included them in their quilts.
I hope you enjoy sewing this block. It may be simple but its very pretty and will look quite lovely in our sampler quilts.
