Missouri Star Quilt Co recently showed a new video called Delaney’s Twirls & Swirls by Lynne Hagmeier and after I watched it I couldn’t resist trying out this neat technique! I grabbed a charm pack and started cutting away.
I used this beautiful charm square pack called Coquette by Chez Moi. I bought it about a year. You can see that I still have plenty of pieces cut plus 5 inch squares I haven’t used. You can end up with a large quilt with just one charm pack.
I first started out with this background but many of the colors seemed to blend in too much so I switched to muslin. Here you can see that the pieces are just stitched on to the block. Easy, easy!
I decided to make a lap size quilt and I can’t wait to quilt it and……throw it in the wash to see how the edges curl up.
I was going to insert the video into my blog post but I’m not sure that is allowed so you can click here to go to YouTube and watch it.
