Girly Swirls

Purple, coral, navy, and gray team up for a snappy wall hanging. Use the same coral or purple print in each block’s corners, then alternate the blocks for an interesting secondary pattern when the blocks are set side by side. Fabrics are from the Paisley Please collection by Jacqueline Savage McFee for Camelot Fabrics.

Finish Quilt

1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.

2. Quilt as desired. Using a 3×12" straight-line long-arm quilting ruler to keep their lines perfect, Handi Quilter studio educators Vicki Hoth and Marie Eldredge stitched pairs of concentric lines behind the pinwheels so the pinwheels look like spinning fan blades (Quilting Diagram). While most of the quilting was done in white thread, coral thread was used in some areas for contrast. They stitched a Greek-key design in the inner border and a continuous chevron in the outer border to finish the piece with a flourish.

3. Bind with solid navy binding strips.
