Whirlygig circular border sections are done, all paper pieced there are 32 of these sections, I love the colors, they will be inset between the applique whirly center and the bumble bee background. This project has been a lot of fun. I learned paper piecing and needle turn applique techniques.
I have started the appliqued outer borders and enjoy the needle turn lots more than I expected! Thank you to Becky Goldsmith for broadening my quilting horizons.
