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.
