Riley Blake 2015 Challenge Quilt

I finished four whole quilts from start to finish this month! Wow! Talk about a busy sewing machine!

Two of the quilts I cannot reveal until later in the year. For now I am going to show my Riley Blake quilt – Top Spin.  This was a challenge presented by the Modern Quilt Guild. The requirements were to make something quilted and to try something new. I tried a whole new pattern and template that I designed.

Top Spin - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comThis is my own pattern, I actually made my templates out of file folders. This was a fun quilt to make. There are two large appliques one for the center and one for the larger circle. I used my walking foot to quilt the giant spiral.

Top Spin - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI am super happy with the results. I used several solids from my stash paired with the Riley Blake prints. The quilt will make a lovely baby quilt for someone someday.

    For someone really lucky! I love your design, and the quilting really makes it spin around. Were you dizzy when you finished quilting? =)

  3. Not m colors but the solids sure make the eyes follow around the circles you quilted. Good challenge
