When you look up the definition of the word whirling you’ll understand how this quilt received its name. The blocks certainly give the appearance of spinning rapidly around a central point. They are made with strip piecing and my favorite ‘power tool’, the Tucker Trimmer 3. It truly is easy enough for beginners, but interesting enough to engage the most veteran stitchers. So don’t hesitate. You will absolutely love the results.
Whirling Lemoynes creates a spinning effect that was inspired by those fun whirling flower lawn ornamants. It's a whimsical quilt that teaches you how to piece Lemoynes and 4-pointed stars without paper piecing. You can go scrappy, or use fat eighths, eighth yard cuts, or a Jelly Roll for your Lemoyne Star points.
