Whirl Pattern


Recently, I've been asked about the kaleidoscope quilt I made from my CSDs fabrics. I just finished making a pattern for the quilt and decided to call it Whirl. The pattern is in PDF format and you can download it for free right here! I’d love to hear how it works out for you.

  1. Thank you sooooo much for this pattern. It is on my bucket list. I am still battling with a few other things. Just gotta finish something first :)

  2. Mary, on the PDF form for Whirl, page two, at the bottom, it says to cut nine 4 & 3/8" squares from each striped strip. The diagram A shows it to be a 3 & 1/8" square. Am I missing something or is that a typo?

  3. Mary, I made a test block, and I think it needs to say 4 & 3/8 in the diagram. But here's another conundrum. If each 6" strip yields 13 wedges, and there are 12 strips, one would get 156 wedges (39 of each style 1,2,3,4). And the pattern states one needs 40 of each style. Just trying to figure out if I'm missing something. Thanks

  6. Thank you for the pattern! I love how it's all straight piecing but gives the illusion of curves.

  7. I love this pattern, but after making 4 blocks per pattern directions, I realized the directions don't match the cover quilt...lol Gonna rip the two out and put the stripe against the solids on Block B like you did in cover quilt. Using fabrics from the "Lovey Dovey" collection by Doodlebug Designs for Riley Blake. Will be for one of my granddaughters. I still love how simple your directions are to follow. Thanks for a great pattern.

  10. This is aaaaaamazing! I have had my fabric for a while and have been searching for the perfect pattern. I love that this looks pretty straightforward, but will admit I'm a little intimidated. :) I am wondering if there is a quilt design program that you recommend for being able to put in your fabrics and see the end result. I'm no pro at this, and want to be sure I place my fabrics correctly to get the movement pictured in your quilt. Thanks!

  11. Does one need permission to sell a quilt made from this pattern?

  12. I just finished this as a baby quilt for my greatgranddaughter. Everyone loves it. It was my first time using this block so it wasn't perfect but her mother loves it.
