I'm excited to introduce my latest pattern: Rivermill!

Rivermill is my take on the classic pinwheel block. I've been wanting to do a pinwheel block for a while now. After playing around with many (many) variations, I finally settled on this block.

I really like mix and match style blocks, so I made sure to include that with this pattern. As a bonus, I added the option to use half yards or fat quarters for a scrappier overall effect.

When I was trying to come up with the colors for the cover quilt I kept getting drawn towards blues and browns. I've never worked with brown in a quilt before, and I have to say, I'm obsessed with this ten color palette. It reminds me of the cold, snowy winter here in Michigan.

As always, I sent my quilt to Jill at J. Coterie for quilting. She chooses the best designs that complement the quilt top and really elevates the quilt to a whole new level.
