Whirlgig/Buzz Saw Quilt Progress

See, I actually do sew with the fabric I purchase. Sometimes. :)



Finished sewing these 12 whirlgig blocks (different than a whirl-i-gig block) together this afternoon. Still need to add a border but I'm not completely sold on the stripped border shown in the pattern picture. It depends on how much fabric I have left over, but I thought some type of applique might possibly look nice. :)

Edited to add: I found this block in a back issue of McCall's Quilting, though it is difficult to find on Yahoo! by looking up "whirlgig quilt block". It is sometimes called buzz-saw, and I even found a tutorial for the block if anyone is interested. http://happyvalleyquilter.blogspot.com/2007/03/its-all-buzz.html

BEAUTIFUL. I THINK AN APPLIQUE BORDER SOUNDS MARVELOUS.

This is going to make a very nice quilt. How many blocks to go?

Oh, this is wonderful!!! Well done, you! And I think an appliqué border might just do the trick of finishing this one off :o) Perhaps some country style flowers?

Hope you have a lovely day! And thanks for the link to the tutorial!
