Twirl is a 70-1/2” x 70-1/2” foundation-pieced kaleidoscope of movement! The pattern features two different versions including Amanda Murphy’s black-and-white Botanica collection used in this kit. Twirl’s dynamic design is sure to please both the modern and traditional quilter…and best of all there are no seams to match!
FABRIC: A modern interpretation of the wonders of nature, Amanda Murphy’s Botanica is quite simply stunning. The dynamic prints are beautifully balanced in both scale and value, and the sophisticated monochromatic palette of grey, black, and white will have wide appeal. Use this contemporary collection on its own or in conjunction with colorful basics like Cotton Shot.
