Whirligig Tutorial (updated)

by Julie Hirt

I’ve been thinking about making another one of these so I pulled up my old tutorial.  It needed some updating.  The Whirligig (wonky windmill, whatever you want to call it) was the 2nd quilt I made.


If you’ve never made one, they come together pretty quickly.  I’m think about using a combination of bright fabrics and low volume instead of prints and a solid.  We’ll see… I always have so much on my ‘want to do’ list!

  1. I know what you mean about the “want to do” list. Your low volume whirligig sounds fabulous!

  2. Enjoyed your blog and became a follower. I invite you to visit mine also and become a follower by joining. My adress is:

  3. That list just never ends does it! Sounds like a fun project. Will stop by and see what you’re up to. :)

  4. I feel you on the wish list! I have approximately 42 quilts on my list of things to do someday… Only question is where will I put all of them when I’m done?? 😀

  5. ooo brights and love volume would look awesome :) I think my “want to do” list is just as long, if not longer, than my WIP list!


  6. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
    against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any tips?

  7. Well, Julie, there is a reason you just found my comment. I have been looking for where I had gotten what I call the “Penny Lane” quilt tutorial. I was only up to block 10 and lost you somehow. Now, I have blocks 11 and 12 and can finish the quilt for my husband (the ultimate rock music fan). Thanks. And if I knew how I would show you the whirlygig quilt (not quite finished yet either). Thanks twice.
