Blue Onion quilt sewing pattern from Saginaw St Quilts
The Blue Onion swirling blocks are made from a variety of contrasting prints. To change it up – make them out of any 12 contrasting prints that you like.
The arcs are long and gentle which makes them easy to sew. Work with 6 different prints at a time to make one set of blocks. This makes it easy to make more, just add to the mix in sets of 6 additional rectangles for 6 additional blocks.
Or, take a practice run with 6 rectangles and turn it into a table runner! Enjoy!
Finished Size: 50in x 70in

Fun and engaging pattern. Love the stack and shuffle method, was familiar with the author but pattern inspired me to buy some of her books.
There is a fair amount of waste to the method, but that's partly because the 14" height starting measurement is just 42" wide fabric cut in 3 equal pieces and also because it gives a big cushion for piecing accuracy. The blocks actually turn out a bit better, imo, when there are slight variations in the segment sizes. Individual stacks can also be just 5 fabrics, instead of the 6 called for, if desired.
Great project for scraps that are least 12.5" x 14" , or a collection of fat quarters, if you donâ€™t want any repeats within stacks. For yardage you should buy 3/8th yds to get up to 3 pieces for the stacks. Each stack of 6 pieces, makes 6 10" blocks when finished trimming down to square.
Good pattern, don't need special $50 oval ruler recommend, has instructions for freestyle, and I made templates to help cut, but also not required
This is a very interesting pattern and different from traditional piecing. Even though there are curved seams, nothing really matches exactly so is forgiving. Directions are straight forward. I bought it to do a scrap type quilt, however it does take larger amounts of fabrics than some of the scraps I was going to use. That was the only downside.
Thank you for so quickly filling my order. I have reviewed the pattern I bought and am quite looking forward to putting it together. It looks a bit complex, but I'm sure I will figure it out. But first I have to set my mind on colours and I'm halfway there.
Thank again for your help securing this pattern!
I made a small wall hanging using this pattern for the first time and although I have a hard time using the no pin method, it came out pretty good--the blocks were a little wobbly, but with more practice, I know it will get easier and easier.
Saw someone else do this pattern. Sounds difficult at first but once you get going it falls in place. Could use more pictures. They show the beginning but would be less confusing with more picture instructions in middle.
