Spinning Stripes v2.0

Last year I went to a class with Shirley Mooney of Don't Wait to Create blog, and learnt how to cut a striped fabric to make new patterns. This is the result.

I finished the first quilt quite soon after the class and I was really pleased with it. You can read more about it here.

Back in March I pulled out the second quilt I had started at the class.  It had remained pinned to a sheet for about 9 months.

I played around with it and ended up changing the layout until it was similar to Shirley's original design.  You can read more about that process here.

Now I've finished my second mini quilt and I love it too.

It's hard to believe I made these two quilts out of this single piece of fabric.  It's all to do with the cutting and the layout of the triangles.

and the quilting:

Both of the quilts are 22" wide.

Thank you Shirley for a fun class and teaching me a new technique.
