Let's Talk Quilting Week 4 Block 4 The Dutchman's Puzzle



Today we will be making block 4 The Dutchmans Puzzle.  





Quilting in America


The Dutchman’s Puzzle pattern is a simple 4-patch block constructed of pairs of Flying Geese blocks. An old design, it originated in the very late 1800s.
It, or some variation of it, is frequently referred to as a Windmill block because the spiral of triangles is reminiscent of the famous Dutch windmills.
