This quilt was based on the Whirligig Quilt pattern featured in the Quiltmaker Magazine, March/April 1994.
I made it for my cousin, in return for the fabric she gave me after her mother in law's stash after she could no longer sew and was put in a nursing home. I said I would be pleased to use her fabric and make something of it for them. She has since passed away, so I hope this quilt gives them memories of her.
I enlarged it from the original pattern. I have made two other quilts (smaller versions) with this pattern. It is a great way to use up scraps and is quick and easy to piece.
