Wild Spin Test Done!

Today, July 25, I finished another pattern test quilt! It was fun to piece and the layout looked easy. Boy was I wrong! I really needed to pay attention lot with this one and will admit to the occasional use of my seam ripper!

This is a great pattern to use up those small pieces of fabric that are leftover from other projects.

I used several fabrics from various designers for this quilt. I had no selvedge edges to know who the fabrics were made by. That leads me to believe the fabrics were used for border fabrics or possibly to finish backings on quilts and have likely been around for a few years! One of my quilty friends gave me a spool of cotton thread she had picked up at Dress Sew in Vancouver. It’s a heavier cotton made by Can Sew. I think I might have to get some more for piecing. The pattern will be published in the December issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine. It was well written and I will be watching for more patterns written by Nan Baker. It was easy to follow and although I did find a couple of mistakes in the cutting instructions, it wasn’t anything major since I had more fabric and was able to cut the extras.

I’m thinking I need to do this one again in some different colours.

I do have a few extra blocks leftover. Rather than adding them to my orphan blocks collection, I think I will make up a couple of pillow slips. This quilt just might become a Christmas gift for one of my granddaughters!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. If you get a chance do check out The Quilt Pattern Magazine on line. I’ve found several patterns to add to my To Do List and they have some sweet Quilt Alongs happening!

Have a great day and take some time to fondle fabric or go for a long walk today, Cheers 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Pretty quilt!! I love the colors and can definitely see that the placement of the blocks would be critical and so easy to mess up!! Your granddaughter is a lucky girl!!!
