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!!!

    I like this pattern / quilt a lot. I'm still debating with me: buying or not buying. I have so many things I want to try and so many things to finish first…

    I absolutely love this, but am not sure I could tackle something that big. Are there any instructions included for how I could size it down??

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

  39. Lana April 30, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

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

  40. Sandy April 30, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

    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.

  41. Kellie April 30, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

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

  42. kelli April 30, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

    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!

  43. marymn May 14, 2012 at 2:36 am #

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

  44. Jessica Thomas June 18, 2012 at 5:08 pm #

    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!!!

  45. Kelly August 29, 2012 at 5:53 pm #

    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/
