Swirligig is an easy-to-sew, paper-pieced quilt block pattern containing the 4 different variations shown in the first graphic. I included them all since I couldn't decide which one was my favorite! This swirling whirligig quilt pattern has foundation pattern pieces in both 6" and 12" block sizes, plus assembly directions, coloring pages, and information on enlarging or reducing the pattern to whatever size you need. Play with colors and movement in your next quilt project with Swirligig. Sewn in cheerful bright prints, it's super fun for baby quilts and kids' projects. And Swirligig takes on a sophisticated, graphic ambiance when done in muted, complex tones -- perfect for throw pillows, a wall hanging or lap quilt in a modern, minimalist decor.
