    I call this Apple Swirls because both prints have apple slices and apple cores. Forgot the name of this pattern.

    Apples Swirls is a great name. I can smell the cinnamon.

    Was that the French Twist pattern? I think it was in a Quilter's Newsletter magazine years ago.

    It was appliqued not pieced, using freezer paper templates.

    (and I see the French Twist name is also used for mini twister quilts)

    Here's another variation:
    http://www.ddcountryquilts.com/quilts/french-twist.htm
    http://barbarabrackman.blogspot.com/...ern-swirl.html

    I think it was by a national quilt teacher who used fabrics that she had bought on a trip to France, hence the name of the quilt. I'm drawing a total blank on the quiltmaker's name.

    Ah, Susan Briscoe to the rescue with her comments on the brackman blog:

    Patricia Logan wrote a pattern using a version of the Swirl block, calling the quilt "French Twist", using up French fabrics bought on a tour to France with Yvonne Porcella. her swirl isn't set in a circle though. It was in the April 2004 issue of "Quilter's Newsletter Magazine" (p 56 & 57)

    That's a marvelous pattern. Wish you had the name of it, although I probably would never attempt it myself. Great job, it's beautiful.
