New “Twirl Me” Pattern

Here it is everyone! I showed you my polka dot mini quilt on Monday and hoped to have the pattern ready by the end of the week and I made my deadline. Do you want to see the mini quilt again? I hope so, because I’m going to show it to you!

Twirling Star Paper Pieced Chestnut Street Fig Tree Fabrics

The blocks are big – they finish at 18″. That makes it easy to make a nice size quilt without a lot of blocks. I used prints from the Chestnut Street by Fig Tree line for my mini. I think they are such happy prints, and that polka dot binding is my absolute favorite.

Here is an image of a throw size done in the same fabrics. You might notice I switched the two fabrics in the center pinwheel. I like the way that changing them made it easier to see the pinwheel.

The pattern includes fabric cutting recommendations to speed up the piecing, as well as a fabric key to help with labeling your fabric selections.

How about a solid version?

The pattern is so versatile. You could make one block and turn it into a cushion cover. Or make two or three for a table runner.

Here’s a table runner size using Ombre and Spectrum from V and Co. Wouldn’t this be great for Valentine’s Day or spring decorating?

Spectrum and Ombre by V and Co Table RunnerThere are so many fabrics to use – every version would look totally different. Don’t you think a scrappy version would be so fun to make?

The PDF pattern is available for download from my Craftsy and Etsy shops. I can’t wait to see the fabric combinations you come up with. 🙂

    I for one am glad you showed your mini quilt again because I missed it the first time. I love it, especially the way the polka-dot fabrics tie it all together.

  8. How fun, the secondary pattern of the design is really nice and I always love seeing a pattern envisioned in different colorways. Congratulations on the new pattern release!

    Beth, this pattern is so much fun! I love all the movement in the center pinwheels and the wonky squares created when piecing the blocks together. Congrats on another great pattern release!

I love to hear from you! I read all your comments and will respond by email to you.
