Welcome to Whirligig Designs!  A new year has arrived and so has my newest block of the month.  I’m so excited to introduce North by Northwest.  I have been working with Northcott on this design which showcases their beautiful new Shimmer line and Easy Pieces - precut, pre-fused appliquι shapes that make it “easy” for you to recreate this stunning quilt.  And of course, with all the cold weather we’ve been having, I have been busy creating more new patterns.  Check them out below, including more free patterns.   Thanks for stopping by.  Scroll down to see all that’s new and then head to the patterns page to see  old favorites.  Enjoy!
