vintage spin



I have a finish to share today, my scrappy "Vintage Spin" quilt







- mr D asked if I'd lined up the spots first!?!  
duh, I'm more of the 'perfection-is-overrated' school of thought! 




- close up of  'loop-de-loop' quilting










The edge-to-edge machine quilting was done by Annette de Raat
Crossing goal #2 off my Q4 FAL list

  3. I love this!!! The colours, the scrappiness - those unmatched dots (LOL). You have had so many finishes this year. Well done.

    Does your vintage machine work - or is it ornamental only?

    1. Thank you so much!I’ve used a real mixture of old & new fabrics, and did quite a bit of fussy cutting! I had a little panic moment when it was all looking a bit too chaotic, but I’m really pleased with how it all turned out in the end!

  16. LOVE this quilt!! Colors and variety are so well-balanced. You make it look easy to pull that off, yet we know it is not!

    1. Thank you LeeAnn! Yes, I found the pairing up of fabrics took quite a bit of time & consideration, had to rummage deep into the stash a couple of times! And the fussy cutting, while it chomps through the fabric alarmingly quickly, it certainly paid off. I love the finished effect!

  19. Congratulations on a lovely finish. I love the movement this design gets and your fabric choices really make the most of that. You have also managed the scrappy look beautifully - lots of variety but well balanced at the same time. It's great.

  20. It's love at first sight for me and this quilt. How you managed to combine these seemingly different fabrics into a gorgeous quilt... There's just one thing, though, the dots don't seemed to be all lined up... (just kidding). And I love the pictures with your beautiful antique sewing machine.

    1. Hi Diann, Thank you!
      The quilt is 'Vintage Spin' from Kathy Doughty's book 'Adding Layers'
      I attended her inspiring Modern Wedge workshop back in October, lots of great ideas - http://kokaquilts.blogspot.co.nz/2015/09/class-show-tell.html
