Hello Friends! I hope you are doing well. My “Twirly Whirly” quilting motif should be self-explanatory in the following images.
These twirly whirlies are perfect for allover quilting, strip quilting, or sashing/border quilting! I tested them on my most recently completed quilt, and will definitely be experimenting and practicing with them in the future! [Sadly, my pictures didn’t quite turn out… that’s why I have no photos to show.]
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting.
Hi Friends! I hope you are doing well. I thought I would share with you a fun quilting motif I recently “discovered”. I am sure I am not the first person who came up with the idea, so don’t quote me. :) But here goes. The inspiration for this motif is none other than the jester’s hat! See? I told you it’s going to be fun…

The key in quilting this motif is NEVER echo to move around. Instead quilt another hat “tentacle” to go places. See if you can understand what I mean from the following series of images:
Here you can see the motif in action:
I thought this motif is a fun and informal one in that it affords quite a bit of movement that creates a nice texture on a fun fabric. Do try it out, and let me know what you think!
