I like this pattern I made two baby quilts using it from a pattern in a very old Quiltmaker.
It was easy and fun!
Congratulations.

I found your blog over the weekend and have been reading through your archives. I am SO impressed and inspired by your work.
This quilt is so fun and whimsical. I love the colors that you chose. I can't wait to try making one.

Anina said...

Cuter than cute!

JasonsMum said...

Love it! So bright and cheerful!

amandajean said...

kelly,

i used a few yards of background fabric-maybe 3-3.5 and then the other colored pieces would take about the same amount of fabric.

i hope that helps!

Jessica said...

Now this would be a great way for me to use up my scraps...oh why do you tempt me?!?

Sarah M said...

Fantastic! Love the bright colors and boldness of the large whirlygigs.

Ariane said...

I love this quilt. It's really bright and cheary. I can't wait to see it all done.

alotalot said...

This would be a good scrap quilt, I think one that I could actually finish...not like my star quilt along quilt that I am stalled on because of my triangle issues. :) This one looks more forgiving.

Patty said...

Very nice, I love all the colors.

Jackie said...

Great colors and great pattern. Happy and cheerful! Swirls would be great for the quilting.

I love the name (it makes me giggle). It's so pretty, I don't think it even needs to be quilted! It's perfect as it is! :-)

Philigry said...

so amazing! i love it.

mushroomvillagers said...

This is the cutest!!! Makes me want to run to my stash and whip one up... Yeah, right- it'll take me at least two weeks. ;)

Qubie said...

Wow! I guess I need to get my finished. Your looks so great sewn together. I was thinking of adding some sashing to my quilt, but now I see I will loose the secondary pattern, but that might be better than a sea of all cream. Your thoughts on this?

Funny side note my word verification is PORN :-)

Helene said...

Wow, lady, you are amazing. You do quilts faster than I can log on my computer. I send your blog to almost all my friends because your work is simple but yet georgous!

Thimbleanna said...

Sooo cute! Thanks for showing us how you made the pattern!

amandajean said...

qubie,

i really really like the sea of cream, as you call it. i LOVE the secondary pattern that is created by the cream, and with the sashing you would lose that. but now i'm wondering what it would look like with sashing...hmmm.

Dawn said...

I just love this quilt pattern! You are an amazing quilter - you do so many! I know you have already answered this question somewhere in your blog, but I can't find it, so am going to ask anyway: What fabric do you use for your standard white, and where do you get it?

Thanks for taking the time to blog all of your creations - I love you site! Very inspirational!

Chara Michele said...

Very cute!

amandajean said...

dawn,

for my background fabric i use either bleached muslin or quilter's only cotton in the color parchment. (i used parchment for this quilt.) i buy both fabrics at joanns. by the bolt. with a coupon or on sale.

Linda said...

Very lovely my friend! Can't wait to see the finished quilt! :)

Sheree said...

You are such a prolific quilter!!! You totally blow my mind and I have been so inspired by you! I made 2 quilt tops today. Mind you there were all squares, super easy peesy. Now for the harder part...the actual quilting! But when I finished piecing just now, I thought of you and had to come check to see what you have been up to lately. Of course quilting. Gosh, did I say how you blow my mind with all these quilts!

Can't wait to see this new one quilted...what a fun block design.

Happy 2009 to you! I am looking forward to tracking your progress this year.

Sheree

Fil de vint said...

I was very nice!

Shannon said...

Oh I just love it! Perfect for a guest room or a kids room. Will you be adding a border? How will you be binding it? Cant wait to see:)

Clair said...

I think that I might make a whirlygiggle. Something different and cool.

nannergirl said...

You've inspired me to make my own....can't wait to see how you finish it.

Rebekah said...

this is so adorable! I love the colors in this quilt and it looks so fresh with all the white.

Kelly said...

Amandajean,
I don't know if this question has been asked already but I am wondering how long it took you to make the top? it is very pretty but seems like it might be a little time consuming? Did you follow the tutorial by tracing and cutting out the whirlys or did you do it a different way?

My dh really likes it and wants me to make one for our bed... I'm a little worried.

Thanks :) Kelly

Sonnja said...

That looks really nice!
