I recently had someone ask me if I had a Spin Me Round quilt block tutorial and I had to do a search on Google to find out what the block was. I have a couple of tutorials for quilt blocks that are similar but not the same.
During the move, I filled a box with quilt blocks that I had on the walls at my country house studio. I remembered there was a lone batik Rainbow Rail Fence quilt block and I thought it would be fun to turn it into a Spin Me Round quilt block.
The first thing I did was to press the quilt block and then fold and crease to find the center of the block.
Next I used one of my square rulers to turn the quilt block into a Spin Me Around quilt block. This is a 10½-inch square Omnigrid ruler that I’m using. My next size was a 12-inch square. I could have drawn an 11-inch square template but this is just a quick tutorial so the 10½-inch ruler worked fine.
Trim off the sides of the quilt block with your rotary cutter.
Continue until all four sides are trimmed.
There is the Spin Me Round quilt block!
The sides of this block are all on the bias so you’ll want to be very careful handling it. I also sprayed some starch on it
Now there is quite a bit of waste doing the quilt block this way but I will use the leftover pieces for another project. Maybe I’ll make a smaller center square and then add the pieces to it.
I had fun taking a couple of photos of Mr. Mickey while we were playing with his rope. He still coughs a lot with his congestive heart failure but I think the walks three times a day are good for him……and me!
I think he is also losing a little bit of weight. I should be but we are still having fun trying out different restaurants in town. Would you believe there are 314 different ones just in Ankeny!
This is his stare when he decides it is walk time….or dinner time!
We are also having fun shopping and recently bought this table for our hallway.
I have also been working on a bargello quilt project and here is a little peek at it. Once again I am working with leftovers from a past quilt.
