This is a drawing of a quilt pattern I’m currently writing.

I call the pattern “Do-Si-Do” because the windmills seem to dance around squares (hence the square dancing reference). But do you think they’re dancing “against a backdrop of stars,” or “under the stars”?

If the design seems familiar, it’s because I’ve used it before. You can see the other versions in my Quilt Gallery, under “Windmill Quilts.”

It’s actually a very simple pattern: a single patch is colored two different ways.

Patches in two different colorways
Patches in two different colorways

Groups of four form 4-patch blocks.

4-Patch block, colorway one
4-Patch block, colorway one
4-Patch block, colorway two
4-Patch block, colorway two

Then, the blocks are alternated.
