vintage spin update...



Well I'm almost finished sewing the wedges for my vintage spin quilt from Kathy Doughty's latest book "Adding Layers". Am aiming for a sort of 70's thrift shop feel by mixing shirting fabrics with some modern prints. The only wrinkle is that I am chickening out when it comes to cutting the circles down to squares. Won't be near a sewing machine in a few weeks so I'd better "woman up" and get it done!

    1. Thank you so much Kelly! Wish I wasn't stalling out on the cutting part. Kind of like them round...

  2. They look so great! I love your color and fabric choices. Anything combined with gingham always makes my heart sing.

    1. Thanks LeeAnn! My laziness in making shirts for M. paid off. All these fabrics are going to end up in quilts now that he no longer wants to dress like some sort of hipster farmer:)

  3. I was thinking the same thing about cutting the circles down to squares! Almost a shame because they are so cute. I love that book, too. Glad to see a project coming out of it.

    1. Thanks Sharon! May have to hire a "stunt" cutter if I don't get my nerve up... Are you making something from this book too?

  4. I love the circles. How about appliqueing them on a whole cloth?

    1. Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, everything I make turns into a series of circles so I'm going to cut these blocks just to be able to claim I've made something different:)
