I hope you will bear with me today as I have loads of pictures of the finished "In A Spin" Quilt to share with you.
This was probably one of the most fun quilts to make! I really enjoyed playing around with the vintage fabrics, ensuring that I could get the most use out of the limited fabrics on hand,whilst still fussy cutting the triangles.
This quilt is relatively easy to make, although it does require just the right mix of fabrics; narrow and wide stripes, some bold, others neutral. Careful handling of bias edges is also recommended - use a quick burst of spray starch for loosely woven fabrics if necessary.
I have quilted this quilt by once again stitching on both sides of all seam lines. I do like my quilts to look more densely quilted and I have therefore repeated this process twice more, stitching a total of three lines on each side of a seam line (6 lines for each seam). The lines are stitched just over 1/2 inch apart (the width of my presser foot), and have created a dense grid which has in turn added loads of character to the quilt.
For the back of the quilt I have used a print called Neo Geo by Jackie Shapiro. I had purchased multiple yardage of this print and thought it appropriate to use a geometric print for this particular quilt.
For the binding I had contemplated using a striped fabric to stay with the overall theme of the quilt, however my heart ruled my head and I have used a binding fabric - Kei Honeycomb in black with white polka dots. I don't regret it, I love the obvious contrast!
