More Whirligigs, with a little Lemon Cheesecake

At Paddington Patchworkers Rae’s been busy, finishing all her blocks, appliqueing them to their backgrounds, and tweaking Sue’s basic pattern by adding a bias striped sashing for a little extra pizzazz.

The final step for all of us will be to sew an appliquee border onto this central 9-patch, to bring it all together.

When those sashings of 4-patches set on point are all in place this quilt will be so crisp and fresh and lemony – yummm!IMG_3826

  1. Wonderful! These are SO neat! Di B - Yours is simply scrumptious! I want to take it home and hang it near the summer patio!


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
