"Spin Cycle" with Denyse Schmidt prints

I finally finished a quilt of my own!
It was several years in the making, but it's finished!
I'm so happy with it!
It's a Cluck Cluck Sew pattern, "Spin Cycle". 
You can find it here, along with all of Allison's other amazing patterns. 
This is one of those patterns that I could make at least a dozen quilts out of......I love it that much!
 
 
I used all Denyse Schmidt prints - one of my favorite designers.
I quilted rows of single loops - one of my favorite quilting designs.
 
 
Love this old fence.  It's right next door to our home......at Channels Ranch.
I made my quilt just a little larger than the original pattern - 30 blocks - and added some extra sashing.
 
 
As I was taking pictures, these two beauties came over to see what was going on.
 
I think she was just looking for an apple treat - I'll bring them one tomorrow.
 
 
 
I used a couple of different prints for the backing - Denyse Schmidt's "Hope Valley",
then added a scrappy binding.
 
 
I love my quilt so much - so does my pretty chestnut neighbor!
 
 
This quilt was the inspiration for my barn quilt I posted about a couple of years ago.
It still hangs on my shed - I love it!

  6. AH, you guys are socked in with smoke, too, I see! Ours is so thick here that at times we can't even see across our narrow valley. What a wildfire season, eh? Your quilt is lovely, and WTG on getting one done for yourself. How did you get the loops quilted so straight?

    1. The smoke is so thick this year - can't even see the mountains that surround us! The loops are super easy - especially when you have straight, even seams in the quilt to follow! Thanks!
