Online Bloggers' Quilt Festival - Spinning Stripes

It's time for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival again, and once again I'm entering two quilts.

The first is my Spinning Stripes, which I finished in September.  I'm entering this quilt in the Mini Quilt section.


I learnt to make this quilt in a class run by my friend, Shirley Mooney.  She showed us how to turn this single piece of fabric into a stunning mini quilt.


I machine quilted this mini myself.  I spread the quilting over two weeks because there were so many ends to bury.



I'm really pleased with how this quilt turned out. It's my favourite greens and blues, and it's a very interesting design.  I have another version already cut and ready to piece soon.



This mini quilt measures 22" across.  Thank you for visiting.

It's really amazing the optical illusion which is created with this quilt.

it is not easy to work with a striped fabric. But you knocked it out of the park. Wish you all the best in the BQF.
Hugs,
