Give it a Whirl bloghop


Hi and welcome to day 4 and the last day of the Give it a Whirl blog hop.   This blog hop is being hosted by Carol of    

When I saw the theme I thought that sounds fun.   So I remembered a quilt a friend had asked me to quilt for her. 

She made this at a retreat in 2022 and asked me to quilt it in early 2023.    She wanted circles on it, and she knew I did ruler work, so asked me if I could quilt it for her.   I said sure.  I hadn't really used my circle rulers yet, so why not.   It was fun. 

I used my circles on quilts ruler from Sew Steady.   I did smaller circles and then some larger circles so they overlap.  I quilted this on my Juki tl18qvp.   I had so much fun.   I had this one quilted fast.  Probably because it was really fun. 

As I was scrolling through my photos I found some other fun whirly things I have done. 

I love ruler quilting and I teach it to others.   These are some designs I do with rulers.

This EPP pillow is from a class I do on English Paper Piecing. 

This purple and teal quilt was quilted with loops.    It was done free motion on my Juki tl18qvp.   

Thank you for joining me on my blog today.   I would love for you to follow me here as well as Facebook at or  on Instagram at

Check out the rest of the bloggers for this week.  I think they have had as much fun as I have had.
