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.
