If a quilt has a traditional name, I try to use it. No creative cutesy name here. And I do think creative names have a place. Like when you create a new design. You create it, you get to name it!
Since this quilt design is known by Whirligig, Kansas Twister, Texas Trellis, Whirling Triangles in a Hexagon…. Yes, it is even considered a hexagon quilt… I’m wondering if every pioneer woman gave it, its own name based on her experiences, where she lived, what her quilting bee might have called it. It is a really old design. It dates back to at least the late 1800s. And this is where my mind goes when piecing quilts! I plan on calling it Whirligig
This is the third, in a series, of serious scrap busting. I say series, as in since I pulled all this fabric out and haven’t attempted to fold it back up and put it away, this is the third top I’ve created. By making all these tops, from fabrics that have been around for probably 25 years, I hope never to fold any of this fabric up, again. Well, except in quilt form.
When I get around to the backings, I know I will have the opportunity to really make a dent in it.
Hoping you are having a Wonderful Wednesday!
