The Basics -- Windmill

I just finished my Basics Quilt Class.  Here's one of the squares I learned to construct ...

The square: The Windmill
Why it's a Basic:When I think of quilting, windmills and whirligigs are what come to mind. Also, it utilizes the same technique as the Half square triangle with a 4-patch design.
What I learned: Look how those eight points come together in the middle.  Genius.  Also, this is the first block I sewed with my new machine. 
What I like about this square: One of my favorite designs
What I don't like: Nothing
Would I do anything differently:Nothing

Taught by Barbara R. at the Prairie Quilt Shops

Just a reminder, this unfinished quilt was photographed on an ottoman and may not appear square, but it is!
