From the designer, my daughter, Haley: Growing up in Vermont, my favorite sign of spring was snowdrop flowers popping out from under the snow. I always found the dichotomy between their delicate looks and their hearty resistance to the bitter cold of the Northeastern winters particularly striking. This quilt is inspired by these blooms, blossoming in the dark and cold, against all odds.
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.
