Blogger's Quilt Festival



This is my Whirly Gigs quilt which is my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. This is my favorite quilt that I've made so far. I love the Hope Valley fabrics, it just makes it so bright and cheery. I didn't buy the pattern to make this one, I just figured out how to make the blocks by trying a few.

  12. I really like how your whirly gig quilt turned out. Your photography of the backing sure is interesting the way you were able to capture the light coming through the window helped to see the a hint of the blocks on the front.
