We’re making progress on our Sue Ross Whirligig quilts at Paddington Patchworkers – and loving the process!
Here are her first two finished blocks, set against dark pink backgrounds. See how piecing the outside ‘cogs’ in the outer wheel in white makes the whirligig appear spiky. Janet’s outer cogs, pieced in that pretty Japanese-style sprig I showed you last month, look quite different.Here are a couple of Aviva’s blocks where she was auditioning different cog wheels before deciding which ones to use with her whirligigs. It pays to play around with different combinations before stitching the rings together - often the results will surprise you.
