Stash Lab Quilt 2 Update

After the detour of the Ducks in the Pond quilt, I'm back to working on the second project from the Stash Lab (affiliate link) book. The pattern on the cover of the book is called The Big Spin, and this is a quarter of the big pinwheel so far:

and these piles are the other three quarters.

Notice in that big pinwheel quarter, the dark squares from making fabric

make a pinwheel, though they aren't set off very well.

A bit lighter value accompanying fabric would have worked a bit better. Oh well.

And I was hoping to use the lights from making fabric in the light part of the big pinwheel,

but opted to cut up yardage instead. But that's a good thing! Those scrap squares will still find a home somewhere in this quilt, just not sure where. First I'll tackle the big pinwheel, and work from there.

Happy Quilting!


  1. I am anxiously awaiting to see how this comes out. I really like the colors of the fabrics. The colors definitely give it a "snowflake" feel with all the blues and whites. --Andrea

  2. That is going to be incredible with the darks and lights.

  3. I cannot wait to see this quilt come together! The mix of scraps, yardage and made fabric is going to make it so original and interesting! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. this is going to be pretty amazing hoe I love your scrap blocks and know it will be a wow
