Let's Go For a Spin




Vintage Spin
65 x 78 
Pattern from Kathy Doughty's book Adding Layers - Color, Design & Imagination. 
It's been difficult to get good pics because the winds have been strong and until today temps were in the teens. 


Each block is hand quilted in either navy, green or orange hand quilting thread...


...in concentric circles. 


I was hoping the circles would make the blocks look a little like they were spinning plus give the quilt some nice texture. 


I used this navy/aqua fabric from stash and bound it all in some polka dots.

Another fun and beautiful quilt! (Is that #5 for the year, or #5 on the list? Because 5 finishes in the first 2 weeks is a tad overachieving...)

(Though that's just jealousy talking, because I never seem to finish anything...)
