Windmilling around

I uncovered some quilts-in-progress, and decided to see just how far I got before I shelved them. This top is fully pieced and bordered:

It’s a square quilt roughly 60″ across, and would make a good lap or baby blanket. I’ll need to find or buy backing and binding. I had a stack of additional windmill blocks that I quickly sewed into strips this morning:

I will make this one rectangular, but I have to find material to use around the border edges because it isn’t very big right now – it doesn’t even cover the dining table. I will probably put sashing strips between the blocks, too.
Chris asked me what I had in mind when I sewed these blocks and I had to admit that I don’t have any idea… It’s been years and years since I put these together. Feels good to be finishing projects.
