Spin Art

I pulled out bright (not necessarily beautiful) scraps from my scrap stash - the strips are only 1 1/2" wide (1" finished) so I had lots of those! It is quite a wild array of fabrics, but a perfect child's quilt - planned for donating, but Dave and my kids love it, so I may have to reconsider....

Spin Art Quilt

Pattern: Spin Art adapted from the cover quilt pattern in Dec/Jan 2011 issue of Quilt Magazine.
Size: 42"X 42" - I used 1 1/2" strips instead of 2" and didn't add borders so it would be a nice small lap size quilt.
Fabric: Scrappy brights from stash
Method: Machine pieced/machine quilted with gentle curves

My mother quit quilting about 5 years ago and gave me all her fabric - I've used lots of it for quilt backings - Isn't this the cutest piece of fabric? - and it is PERFECT for the back of this colorful quilt!

Spin Art Quilt For those who have asked about this quilting method...Here is my little cheater guider attachment (actually I'm using it backwards in this picture). I never mark quilts - always make it as simple and easy as possible. For this quilt I made one gentle curve from corner to corner diagonally and then just followed it out each way every 1.25" - This is done with regular sewing (feed dogs up) - My Pfaff machine has a built in walking foot which makes the top and bottom of the quilt flow through smoothly and easily.

It matches the flowers I bought at Trader Joes!
