Quilt Concert: First Notes Block 14

September 17, 2021

We are spinning into place with the Whirligig block!

Block 14 Instructions

Whirligig may have been my favorite block in the entire quilt to construct, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Whirligig is block number 1266e in Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

Sponsors and Prizes of the Week

We are thrilled to have two amazing sponsors this week! The prize for a US resident is a $20 gift card from a wonderful quilt shop local to Lissa and me, Sew to Speak! Sew to speak carries tons of inspiring quilting and apparel fabric, yarn, patterns, notions, and Juki sewing machines! It is a fun shop to visit, and they have online shopping as well.

The international prize this week is a six month digital subscription to Make Modern Magazine! Each issue is packed with great articles, awesome projects, and tons of quilt-y inspiration. Make Modern is a personal favorite of mine, and have subscribed for years, so I am sure that our winner will love it too!
