Spin Cycle

spin cycle
This is my favorite quilt to date…no joke….I love it more than anything I’ve ever made.  I made it in "my" colors so I can use it on my bed or the guest bed and stare at it everyday.

It’s really fun to put together…and there are only 25 big blocks to make.  I used fat quarters from all different fabric lines and in bright fun colors…but the grey solid in each block ties everything together.

The quilting was done by my favorite local quilter Sheri Bear…she does an amazing job every time.  The back is a print by Violet Craft for Michael Miller…a good true green fabric is tricky to find.

Spin Cycle is really gorgeous and it is very original. I like that. I don't think I've ever seen that block before. I like the idea you had to harmonize all the blocks by using gray. Congratulations!!!

This is such a happy quilt and I love your colors. I ordered the pattern and can't wait to make it. It will be a great summer project.

Great colors..the pattern is identical to our ambulance dept. patches and the back of the ambulance.

Lana said...

Love this quilt. It makes you feel happy. Great colors.

Sandy said...

I love the name of the pattern! It appears like I am looking into the washing machine and watching it spin. (if it were possible now in this day of safety first) It also reminds me of a big flower in each block. I may be back to order this one! Gorgeous.

Kellie said...

I'm going to order a few of these patterns tomorrow before the sale ends. I live for your patterns!

kelli said...

What is the grey fabric? Kona Ash or a lighter color? I was going to make your hourglass quilt in pinks and greys, but this one has stolen my stash :) I love that they look like flowers!

marymn said...

Do you sell your blankets? I don ' t sew but LOVE this and would love to own it!

Jessica Thomas said...

Do you have a list available of the fabrics used? I can't figure out what some of them are? This quilt is so delish and is so gorgeous I bought the pattern to make one just like it! Beautiful work!!!

Kelly said...

Fantastic fabric choices and great layout. These colors all work SO well together! I love this quilt and have pinned it to my "Quilty Goodness" board on Pinterest (with proper credit, of course!). Feel free to follow me if you'd like: http://pinterest.com/lipglass/quilty-goodness/
