Waynonda-smWaynonda’s Winding Ways is a 4-color, 6-fabric quilt in a horizontal setting. The quilt measures 72 x 72 inches. My first design for a Winding Ways quilt was an on-point setting and colored with sea greenish fabrics. When I opened the Winding Ways Design Book, I saw the sample quilt Linda had included in the worksheets with curved edges. I just had to try it out in a new design! This might be one of my top ten favorites in the A-Z series of designs.

This design uses the Inklingo 9” Winding Ways Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana by Northcott.

Waynonda is a living person so I am not sharing any personal information about her. She has one of the more unusual names in my family tree. Don’t you think a Winding Ways quilt was the perfect match for her name?
