"Spinout" designed by Barbara Cline


designed by Barbara Cline

In the July/ August issue of "Quiltmaker" Magazine.
I think this is a fine looking quilt.  When I was a new quilter I would have been very unhappy with how I made this quilt and probably would have done many remakes and "unsewing".  Now I have learned to enjoy the piecing process, to relax about my mistakes, and imperfections in my projects.  Do they really take away from this quilt? Will these errors, that I am going to share with you, reduce the enjoyment the recipient receives from this quilt?  NO :0) I don't think so........ do you?

A recycled shirt with part of the pocket  still attached.

stripes don't line up

Two different stripes to make one pinwheel

Two different colors for border....two orange, two yellow

 pieced together shapes for triangles

Here is the basic foundation piece

side #1 cover with solid piece of fabric

I am using scraps and this piece will not cover the foundation shape #2

this corner is not covered

this is a scrappy quilt so I can just add a piece on

now the foundation is covered

cut away paper and fabric from cut line making sure to have 1/4 inch seem line all around foundation piece

there are several of these pieced together in my quilt.
