Designs developed from the Windmill Base
 
This page attempts to record what is known about the history of designs developed from the Windmill Base. Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.

All these designs can equally, of course, also be developed from the Blintzed Windmill Base or the Triple Blintz Basic Form.

There are separate pages for designs developed from the Blintzed Windmill Base and the Triple Blintz Basic Form which cannot be developed from the Windmill Base.

A design called the Bat occurs in 'The Kindergarten Principle' by Mary J Lyschinska, which was published in London in 1880 by Wm Isbister Ltd. I am not sure if there is any connection between these two designs.
