A Baby Spin! Finish

I have been wanting to make a baby version of my Spin! pattern for quite some time.  When I teach this pattern, I always talk about this variation but until now, I never had a visual sample.



I made this version out of pink, orange and yellow scraps.  
With the scrappy border, the quilt measures 52" square.



I used a white thread to quilt some swirls that would disappear into the Kona White I used for the background.  A bright orange solid was found in my stash for the binding.



I decided to go with a pink backing with sweet white flowers.



It is certainly happy and bright!



And here is a photo of the pattern quilt.
(Of course now that I compare them, I see that I stitched the little one up with the swirl going the other way - that is what happens when you don't read your own pattern...Yeesh!)

Oh well, they both look great!

Both quilts are beautiful! Your baby quilt pattern wasn't a mistake, it was a new design element!!

I love both of these and it has nothing to do with the fact that they are both in my favorite colors. ;^)

That is the neatest design! I love the bright, happy color, and the movement in the quilt! Glad you got a baby size completed for your class sample. Are you teaching it soon?

Cathy said...

That is a great quilt and fabulous design, Cynthia! Both versions are so dynamic. And who says you can’t have the swirls go the other way! Design options!!

I love it! It's just gorgeous. It feels good to finally make something that has been in your head for so long!

Fabulous colors for a baby quilt! And of course your design is so fun and bouncy :)

Kate said...

A warm version to go with the cool version, a great way to show off the pattern. Congrats on a beautiful finish.

They are both gorgeous!

And it looks fine going the other way too! I just did the same exact thing this past week on one of my table runners...design choice!

I really like the baby version. Your colors are just outstanding!! And its okay to have them swirl two different ways - so the flexibility of the pattern!

Emily said...

Such lovely colors! I love seeing both versions.

This finish really shows the versatility of the pattern. The original in blues and grays makes for a lovely modern finish, and sure enough, just changing out the palette creates a quilt that's perfect for a kiddo. With its generous size, it's a project that will be loved for years. Well done!
