Block of the Month and Quilt-A-Long

We are now on our second block for our "seaside sampler".  The first block was a sailboat.  Jackie has embellished hers with top stitched waves, appliqued sun, a cross stitched anchor and embroidered birds.  If you would like to make one yourself, here is the pattern.
Our second quilt block is called "whirligig".  It's a simple spiral shape which can be stitched together 'as is' or as chevrons.  Here's a picture of the block made both ways. Here is the pattern

I'll be posting all our patterns here on our blog.  If you fancy having a go, we'd love to see some pictures.
