Weekend with whirlygigs

I know I have 3 other WIPs that I could be working on. But, after being inspired by several whirlygig quilts on some of my favorite blogs and Flickr, I decided to use a few of my Wee Play jelly roll scraps to make a little sample of my own. I'm going to add a white border and a multicolor binding soon....gotta get a darning foot for my machine so I can actually quilt something!
Some of my inspiration pieces:
autumn whirlygigs
isn't it beautiful!
sweet in blue
And I must mention Camille Roskelley's pattern that I'm going to purchase (as well as her YUMMY fabrics coming out this fall). I LOVE THIS!
and THIS too! Adding them to my Christmas wish list :D

I handmade a pattern following an online tutorial....(and I cannot find that link now that I want it again!) My blocks are 7.5" (finished at 7"). Only thing is, I don't have a baby, and it's too pretty to give to my daughter for her dolls! lol Maybe I'll save it for a gift for a special person.


  1. Those whirligigs are sooooooo cute. I love how each petal is different but still the same color. I'm also in the process of sewing some of these together.

  2. Thanks for linking to my quilt! To inspire someone of your calibre is a compliment, to be sure!
