Whirling Leaves is stunning lap or twin quilt, with bonus instructions for a small wall hanging. Collect fat quarters for the leaves and background. Avoid directional prints because the fabrics will be cut and sewn on various angles. Batiks or tone on tone prints work well in this pattern. Good contrast between background and leaves is essential. Yardage is based on 40" usable width. Fabric requirements have been given for the twin size only, although the pattern gives quantities and instructions for all three sizes.

Supplies Needed

Hi! I am Janet Barker from Calgary, AB. I have been quilting for 16 years and have been designing my own quilt patterns for about 9 years. At the request of my guild, I started publishing my patterns in 2011. My pattern testers, customers and students have been very happy with their results using my new patterns. I love seeing another quilter's version of my designs! My patterns often incorporate completely original blocks, or at the very least new twists on standard blocks. In addition to standard piecing, I have three other types of designs - folded back bias curves (sometimes called Cathedral Windows curves), geometrics using "grout", and tessellations. So far I have not incorporated curved piecing or applique, but that may come! I have an engineering degree and am a retired geophysicist; perhaps that is why I love the geometry of quilting! I hope that you will enjoy stitching up some of my designs. Visit me on Facebook at Wholesale inquiries welcome.
