Schnibblemania
#12

#12 - Spin City with Park Ave.
*
Seems appropriate that this quilt would be the final quilt in my Big Schnibble parade. Why? This self-challenge has left my head spinning. :-)
*
I had a fat quarter bundle of Park Ave but no additional yardage for the inner border. I found some yardage from Gingham Rose by Moda - not perfect but it works.
*
I'll be back tomorrow to wrap up my Big Schnibble parade.

In Friendship!

I just realized that the quilt numbers coordinate with the date; the 12th Schnibble on the 12th of August. I love Park Avenue and it's beautiful in the Spin City pattern. Thanks for the parade I enjoyed it very much.

It suits that the spinning would be today because everything is spinning around here!

Lori said...

Gorgeous as usual!!

I couldn't help but notice Carol's comments with the dates. She's right...did you plan that? My friend celebrated her 55th birthday on 8-9-10 and was born in 55. Quite the odd day number wise. Ok..back to your post...Hee! Loving Park Avenue and have always liked Spin City...lucky me has set aside some Park Avenue....I might be a copy catter someday.

Another beauty!!! I think the small border works wonderfully to frame the quilt. I love it. I can't wait to see the parade. Hugs...

Who ever thought a "One-Man (woman) Parade" could be wonderful?

I like the Spin City pattern. It looks so complicated with all the movement and pattern. Pretty, pretty thing!

Back of the book, eh? Truly an accomplishment to reach this goal!!!

Lynn said...

This was a really cool goal!!!! and you now have some great quilts. I've tried doing this with my cook books, but that never seemed to happen.

Another beautiful quilt. Just look at how many tops you have ready for quilting. Maybe this can be your winter projects. (grin) Winona

Thanks for sharing all these Schnibbles with us - I had seen the name crop up but had not seen any of them and it's been quite eye-opening! You have a great treasure in all of these!!

What a 'furious finale'. I think I love your version of Spin City even more than the original quilt in the book. So well done!

julieQ said...

Oh, pretty! You have done such a wonderful sewing through this book, I just love to see what you are up to next!

Quilter Kathy said...

This is one of my favorite quilt patterns. I like how you reversed the light/dark in some of the blocks!
