Last November, my Shabby Spin block was in Vol.6 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. This is such a fun versatile block and I immediately started coming up with lots of variations on how to "spin" it.
And that is how Spin-Off came to be. Blocks are spun in different ways and more color added to create a fabulous secondary design and a whole lot of movement. And I am just pleased as punch with how it turned out. I can't wait for it to come home so I can snuggle up with it :) The fabrics are Modern Shadows and Color Weave from P&B Textiles.
(And I apologize, somehow I managed to send this quilt off to the publisher's without taking any pictures of it, I was right at the holidays and apparently I was functioning on half a brain. So, these are just shots from my copy of the magazine, totally lame, but it's all I got.)
The quilting was done by the fabulous Natalia Bonner. She did a fun retro design in the center that so goes with the feel of the quilt and a repeat square design in the border.
So . . . How about a chance to win your own copy of Quilts from 100 Blocks. Pop on over to Quiltmaker's blog for a chance to win!!! And if you don't win it's okay, this issue is now available for purchase wherever quilt magazines are sold ;)
