Whirly Garden pattern released

After receiving quite a few emails asking about my Whirly Garden pattern, I've finally taken some photos, formatted the instructions and uploaded the pattern. It's only taken me... about a year!

Some of you may remember it originally appeared in a Quilters Companion "Precuts" edition. It takes two charm packs or a bunch of scraps from your stash. I cut my own 5in squares from Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley range to make it.

I had some fun with the back too! Isn't the orange great? I would have really enjoyed the straight line quilting if I hadn't had morning sickness at the time (yes I quilted it that long ago - Grace just turned 1.)

Thanks Sarah for the kick up the pants I needed to get this one done!

If you'd like to try this fun pattern, you can download it here.
And guess what... I have another pattern coming up next!


  1. Yeh!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this pattern for ages. I even tried to do one myself but I had a lot of wastage and that was just with a baby quilt. Thanks kate.

  2. Fantástica. Me gusta, el colorido, el acabado, todo.

  3. Love the back & the quilting!

  4. Congrats!! Fun quilt, love your binding too!
