Picnic and Fairgrounds Whirligigs

I knew these fabrics wouldn't sit long. I love them too much. After much agonizing over what to do (I contemplated Small Plates, modern crosses and lots of others), I decided to try whirligigs!

They're fun so far and I love how they look all jumbled together. I have 12 blocks so far and need lots more! Here is a picture of some laid out when I had 10 finished:

Now the questions are:

1) Should they be all up against each other like this or should I add plain white squares in between each one?
2) Should they be straight across like this or set on point?

Decisions, decisions.

Oh and look:

My birthday was last month and I got a big girl sewing machine! Will I ever use half of those stitches? No. Do I love this machine and does it make me happy? Yes.

1. White in between, I think.

2. On point. I don't know why, but I always like things a little tilted.

I love the vintage vibe from the fabrics. So pretty.

I love the blocks! you need to post it to the DS Quilts flickr group so I can favorite it!


In my humble opinion, I think you should do all whirligigs (there's enough white already) and definitely on point.


Great idea, realy shows the fabric. I also think there is enough white, and I love on point,it is so fun and bright. Keep us posted!

I say no more white. That will take away from those adorable prints.

For my DS prints I am contemplating a bow tie quilt. Haven't fully decided yet. :)
