I am so excited to share the last pattern of 2020 – Whirlwind!
This pattern was designed during a doodling session in the middle of the (first) coronavirus lockdown. The structured chaos reminded me of what 2020 has been a bit like – like being caught in a windstorm, being pull this way and that.
After doing some quick math, I set out to make this quilt. In true 2020 fashion, I used all fabric that was in my stash already. I ended up using some of my favorite colors, shades of blues and pinks, which interestingly enough, I haven’t used on a cover sample before!
I wish I had stopped and taken pictures during the process for this quilt, but it all came together so quickly that I didn’t. Once I cut into the fabric, there was no stopping!
That said, I will admit that once I sat down to write this pattern, having to figure out the best way to communicate how to make this pattern stopped me on my tracks. I wrote and rewrote the instructions at least 3 times trying to make them easy for even the most beginner quilter to follow.
I also had no idea how to quilt this! Thankfully the wonderful Katie at Modern Textiles had just the perfect panto for this – Mike’s Swoosh. It fits this pattern so, so perfectly! I couldn’t be happier with the end result!
I hope you love this pattern as much as I do!
