Spin It Again Quilt from Vintage Quilt Revival

SpinItAgainmodernquilt

It’s time for a peek at another one of the quilts in Vintage Quilt Revival! This week I’m excited to share my “Spin It Again” quilt.

This quilt was one of the last ones I designed for the book. I just love the block that’s used here—a classic Wheel of Fortune block, which is found in so many beautiful antique quilts. But I struggled with ways to truly update it. When I eventually hit on the idea of just swapping the placement of the prints and solids, it promptly became one of my favorite pieces in the book.

I named it “Spin It Again,” because whenever I hear the block name “Wheel of Fortune,” I just can’t not think of Pat Sajak. Spin that big wheel again—come on, big money!

It’s a fun paper-pieced block, and using a print for the background, plus a coordinated solid (in this case, white) is also handy for helping disguise some, uh, slight piecing inaccuracies. : )

Books should be in stock any day now, on Amazon and at your local shops! Amazon still says it will be in stock on Dec. 31, but we anticipate U.S. pre-orders will be shipping very, very soon.

And one more reminder: I’ll be on American Patchwork and Quilting Radio this afternoon with Pat Sloan! You can listen in live at 4 p.m. Eastern time, 1 p.m. Pacific, or any time after that. Click here to listen.

    I'm so glad you are showing the quilts from the book. So many blog hops and reviews don't give a chance to see what is actually in it and I'm always hesitant to want to buy the book. Yours looks like a great buy!

    That is gorgeous. I love swapping the print and solid; I also love swapping the white from background to sashing(not actually, but almost reads like sashing). I had that pattern in my to-do list back in template days. Never got the pieces cut.
