A Really Big Finish!

I am so happy to announce I am finally releasing another pattern. 
This one is called Spin!  




This pretty blue and white one I made using half yard cuts but it is also designed to use scraps.  As you can see, even the border is pieced!   

I really have a soft spot in my heart for two colored quilts.  And I love taking a traditional block and putting a new spin on it.  In this case, I did that literally!



My original quilt was made in red and light gray.  It is a perfect pattern for a confident beginner or the seasoned quilter.  The pattern has clear instructions and diagrams to help ensure success.  The reason this pattern has taken so long is I have been working with a graphic artist and now it is professionally formatted so I can start getting it out to stores soon.

Just like I have done with all of my patterns, I have created a Spin! Pinterest board sharing quilts made using this pattern.  It is a great place to see how others are using my patterns!




 As you can see, I have gone a little crazy and started making one in every color!

If you would like to buy this pattern, it is available as a pdf download through my Etsy shop or through my Payhip Pattern Store.  To celebrate, I thought I would put all of my patterns on sale through Sunday May 1st - including this Spin! pattern.  So this weekend is a great time to grab those patterns because sometime Monday, they will be increased to their regular price.





And what is a pattern release without a giveaway!  You can win your own pdf copy of the pattern (I will credit you back if you have already purchased it) and to get you started, I will send you a half yard of two Kona solids.

You can choose Kona Ash and Kona Navy...







...or you can pick Kona Lipstick to go with the Kona Ash.

I would have a hard time choosing between these colors.




There are two ways to enter.  1) The first is to just leave me a comment letting me know which Kona combination you would like to win. 2) For an additional entry, help me share this new pattern.  Pin it, tweet it, share it on your Facebook - however you want to help me spread the word is fine by me.  Then just leave a comment letting me know how you shared it.  I really do appreciate it!

International readers are welcome to enter BUT, due to high shipping costs, I may not be able to ship the fabrics.  I will just need to play it by ear.  But if you should win, I will still send you a .pdf of any or even all of my patterns.

Please make sure you’re not a no-reply commenter (or leave an email address in your comment if you’re not sure). You cannot win if I cannot get a hold of you!  

The giveaway will end on Sunday May 1st at 9 pm PST.
Good Luck!

*****This giveaway is closed. The winner is #2 Jayne of Twiggy and Opal. ******

  9. Love the pattern! I've been intrigued by the idea of log cabins as curves ever since I first saw one but haven't been brave enough to try it yet. I would love to make one in the red/grey colorway.

  11. Oh, that is a fantastic pattern!! Love it!
    (I'm working on picturing it scrappy - like I need another idea running around in my head! *grin*)
    Red is good. Red is almost orange, which is the perfect color. 8)

  30. Just when you think there is nothing new about a log cabin pattern, up pops another one. That design is soo cool. I'm leaning toward the blue and gray fabrics, but either one would be fun to work up. Congrats.

  51. Great pattern...really is a striking quilt. I would HAVE to choose the Lipstick and Ash combination. If you knew me you would know I keep one (lipstick, that is....lol) in my pocket, my purse, my car and even one in my bra most days. My grown children share a laugh about "Mom and her lipsticks". Thank you for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  57. what a wonderful pattern, totally captivating, i would love to make it either in red, or maybe shades of green. hop[e i win one!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Funny how an old pattern can turn "modern" with a little help from Cynthia. Great job, girl! Just beautifully done. I love this one, and not only because it is blue lol. You'd think I'd go with the navy and you would be wrong. I'd like lipstick if I win. The daughter of a friends loves red, black and grey. I'm sure she would love this pattern too. Thanks for the chance. Great pattern. ;^)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I've pinned it on my "Blue Quilts" page, on Pinterest, of course.

  60. Love your Spin quilts! Should I win, I would choose the Lipstick with the Ash. My MIL loves red and I could make the Spin quilt in red for her.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Going with red (I think)! Both are great, but not much red in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love this arrangement of log cabin blocks with a twist. If I win, I'd like the red fabric package please, but I would probably use a mix of red fabrics with ash.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've pinned both your blue and red versions in "Quilts".

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm terrible at choosing red fabrics, so I would be thrilled to win the Lipstick!! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love this pattern! Thanks for the opportunity to win! I would choose the navy and ash pair.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love this pattern! I would have a hard time choosing which color to use, and probably, like you, will end up doing multiple times. I think for my first one, I would do it in the navy and ash.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I pinned your pattern/picture on Pinterest :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Gorgeous! You know I love patterns that look curved, but really aren't!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I pinned to my "quilts" board. I chose the photo with one of each color-I love seeing all those colors!

    ReplyDelete

  85. Hi, I'm visiting from over at Lara's fun mini blog hop. Somehow I missed this post before. I love me a log cabin block, and I thought I had seen every way of setting them together, but this is certainly a new spin! I love it. I really like the two-color combination, but I'm sure there will be lots of variations on that, too. I bet Jayne was thrilled with her win!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Lovely design. I like two color quilts as well. They simply resonate in their simplicity and confidence. Funny thing though, I don't know if I've ever made one for me! This pattern may be just the ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Love Love LOOOOVE your Pattern!! the quilts are AWESOME!!!! & I love all 3 colorways you show here. Beautiful design & grrrrreat job!! :)

  88. Visiting from BuzzinBumble. Love the 2-color quilts. I would have chosen the red and the ash.
