another view of Spinning on That Dizzy Edge and a giveaway



I'm always amazed at how different the same pattern can look just by using different fabrics. Aren't you? And my latest block Spinning on That Dizzy Edge is no exception. I made the original version for Scott Hansen's Quilters-Uber-Fest with gorgeous fabrics by Nel Whatmore and Kaffe Fasset, but I thought it would be fun to see what it looked like in different fabrics.




For this block, I used some of Amy Butler's gorgeous prints from her Soul Blossom's line: Temple Tulips in Cinnamon, Dancing Paisley in Limestone, and Laurel Dots in Cilantro. The solid fabric is Kona Snow. I really love how this looks! I think the repetition of the solid white really makes all of the fabrics pop.











If you'd like to make a block of your own, the free pattern is available to download as a pdf here.

And just for fun, do you know where the name Spinning on That Dizzy Edge comes from? Leave me a comment with your guess and I'll send a random winner the leftover scraps of Sleeping Beauty by Nel Whatmore and Kaffe Fasset fabrics I used for the original block! The giveaway will be open until Friday at midnight, EST.

Google tells me it's song lyrics for 'Just Like Heaven' by the Cure (but otherwise I would have had no idea).

But it also sounds like a description of my kids spinning and giggling ~ that's a game that never gets old :)

Well honestly I had no idea...but going by everyone else's comments I'll say song lyrics for Just Like Heaven by The Cure.

Sorry, I had no idea but couldn't help but see all the comments saying it's a song lyric, which makes total sense to me! I would have ended up googling it and coming up with the same answer anyway.

I love song lyrics as titles for other things, by the way. For blog post titles, too.

Dang it. It looks like some of the other responders guessed the same as me after a simple google search... It's song lyrics from Just Like Heaven by the Cure. Hopefully you'll be using Mr. Random to pick a winner.
