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 Craftsy.  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. ******

Great job! I posted it on my pinterest and put it on my Facebook because it's just so creative; I love new log cabin settings.

Oh Cynthia! This is such a great design! I so love it! You have been busy, all three color combinations are beautiful. Congrats on this one...perfection! I'll play along, I love the Ash and Lipstick combination. The possibilities are endless with fabrics! Spin...really perfect!

Libby in TN said...

Love it! Gotta have it! Will order soon. Already thinking about what fabric(s) to use. The blue combo would be my preference.

Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl said...

Beautiful design, Cynthia! Congratulations. :)

Heather Crook said...

So beautiful! I'd love the the Navy and Ash combination.

Emily Breclaw said...

Wonderful pattern, Cynthia!!!!I just love it. . and wouldn't be able to choose between the colors either! Although I do have a bigger blue stash. . .would probably go with the navy. I just love the design!!

Emily Breclaw said...

And I just posted on my facebook page :-)

Crafty Coffin said...

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.

Crafty Coffin said...

I have pinned your quilt to my "quilting inspiration" board.

gayle said...

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)

Heather said...

Wow....a beautiful pattern! I love the ash/navy combo.

LIttle Penguin Quilts said...

Oh, I like this one! Congratulations on getting it all done for publication and sale! If I were to win your giveaway, I would choose the navy and ash. The navy is so useful and I've never had any ash.

Lynda said...

I would definitely choose the Kona ash and Kona navy. Your pattern is beautiful.

Carole @ From My Carolina Home said...

Just purchased your Spin pattern, love it. I'll be sharing this as my first week purchase in the May Is For Makers Campaign. It will be on my blog on May 2. I love both the navy and the red, it would be hard to choose, but I think I will go with navy.

Janna Saeger said...

Great pattern. I like the navy and ash combination.

Janna Saeger said...

It's wonderful! I would make the blue and ash if I were to win.

Heather Todd said...

Jennifer in WNY said...

Oh that is a tough choice! But I think I would go with the blue and ash.

Ann Dunn said...

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.

Crafty Tokyo Mama said...

I love your cool and refreshing blue and white colors, so the blue and ash would be perfect to give it a try. I've been crushing on this design since you first revealed it and am thrilled you wrote up a pattern. Thank you!

Crafty Tokyo Mama said...

I pinned the top photo as inspiration to my Quilt pinterest board.

Nancy said...

Love the pattern--gives it such movement. I like the Kona Navy and Ash combination.

Blue and ash is strikingly beautiful! That's my pick.

Joyce Hennessey said...

I love both colors but, the red would win if I won. I so must have this pattern. I can't fight it...must make it.

Kristy said...

I love your quilt! It is so interesting with the spiral design in the middle. I would love to have the lipstick combo. I so enjoy your posts on Crazy mom. You always inspire me to keep using my scraps. Thanks for the chance to get a copy of your pattern. K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com

I am in a blue mood these days so I would love to win the navy and ash combination. Great pattern!

Kathy E. said...

such a beautiful and unique quilt pattern! I'd choose the Kona Lipstick and Ash fabrics.

Heidi said...

Love this pattern in every colorway!

Louise said...

What a great pattern! I haven't tried any sort of log cabin type quilt yet, so yours may very well be my first :)

I'm a navy girl through and through, so that's the color I would choose. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

kupton52 said...

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.

kupton52 said...

I shared on my Pinterest board and emailed my quilt guild members about it.

Sena said...

Love this design of the traditional log cabin. I choose the navy color. Thanks for the giveaway. Sena

Donna W said...

Fantastic pattern. Love all 3! I would choose Kona Ash and Kona Navy.

Judy Zoll said...

What a great "spin" on the log cabin block. Lipstick red for me. Zollj@bpsnetworks.com

Mary Howland said...

I would like the red one. Thanks. It's a beautiful quilt and would be lovely whateve colors were chosen.

shoshu said...

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!!!!

Scrap and quilts said...

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. ;^)

Scrap and quilts said...

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

Lisa Marie said...

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.

Judy H said...

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

Marly said...

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.

Marly said...

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

The Joyful Quilter said...

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

Gloria Cotten said...

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

Dorothy said...

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.

Dorothy said...

I pinned your pattern/picture on Pinterest :)

Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation said...

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

:) Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation

Jusmom1 said...

I would love the navy! Thank you SO much for this wonderful giveaway and the chance to win!

Emily said...

I love this! A really great pattern. All color combos are great; I would pick the lipstick, since I haven't done a read quilt, but have done several in blues.

Emily said...

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

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

This is an amazing pattern. Such movement. I'd pick Lipstick. Congratulations.

Mary at Fleur de Lis Quilts said...

I pinned both the red version and the blue version to my "heart, quilts" board. Love your gorgeous pattern and the movement it creates.

Michele said...

I really like the pattern. Nicely done.

Jeanne said...

Great quilt! Thanks for sharing.

Jasmine said...

Congratulations on your new pattern! It looks beautiful. I have always loved curved log cabins.

Shawna said...

I forgot to mention that I would prefer the navy if I win ;-)

Lara B. said...

Kathy H said...

Great pattern, I can see how you would want to make one in so many colors.

Deborah said...

Wonderful pattern and all of the colors are striking.

Teresa in Music City said...

Wow - this is beautiful!!!

JanineMarie said...

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!

Connie Kresin Campbell said...

Beautiful design Cynthia!

Jennifer Fulton Inquiring Quilter said...

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.

OhioLori said...

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

LJ said...

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

Sandra @SewofCourse said...

What an original "spin" on log cabin blocks. The two colours really make the setting jump out!

Shelley E said...

Gorgeous quilts-I love the red one the best.

Kathy's Korner said...

Wow - love the pattern!
