Meet my Tilt O' Whirl quilt.
Each block of swirling circles looks like
the top view of a Tilt O' Whirl....
my very favorite ride!!!
This quilt will have you playing with circles once again.
Are you getting tired of playing with circles?
Oh!!! I hope not!!!
As for me...I just love circle blocks...
I even put more circles on the borders:)
I used light gray for the sashings...
with red posts...
and a red yo-yo in the center.
The blocks are easy to assemble...
4 patch backgrounds and 4 easy corner triangles each.
All of the circles are easy to sew using the pellon method.
And once again each circle in this quilt are sewn from the circles in
these 3 prints from
Also included are the patterns and directions to make this
bunting/banner in 2 sizes.
The small bunting is made
with the circles from the 3 prints also...
And the larger bunting is made with 5" squares.
I think both sizes look cute together...
I showed the larger bunting at quilt market but
I didn't show the small because
I ran out of time and didn't get it made:(
I hung the large one on the monkey bars in my back yard
for a photo or two the morning before it
flew on a plane to Houston:)
I liked the way it looked outside too...
and I'm sure I'll be hanging these banners inside and out!
