Amy of Amy’s Creative Side is hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Bloggers can share up to two quilts by writing a new blog post for each quilt and linking to the festival link party. This is my very first time to enter. Most of the quilts are traditional, but as Amy said, there are no restrictions and to share what you love.

My ice dyed and turntable spinner art fabric
This small quilt combines my love of ice dyed fabric, with a fun technique using a turntable. For information on my spinner art, check out these posts.
I found that matchstick quilting really made the ice dyed background pop out.
Adding lots of stitching to the center of the spinner created movement.
The background is another piece of ice dyed fabric using the same colors but a different design.
Come check out the other quilts over at Amy’s blog. If you have a quilt to enter, drop by her post and link yours up. The Blogger’s Quilt Festival is open until September 24.
This was my first mini quilt in my spinner series. Now to get back to play!
Do you think if tou used a record player turntable with an old 33 on it, and placed your fabric on it it would work? The idea is to spin, right? May have to have a tiny hole in center which could be worked around?
I love the spin concept, the next step in creativity, maybe!
Ruby, I just realized that I said that spin part of the piece was made with a child’s spinner art machine. It wasn’t. It was made on a turntable and I just put the fabric over the record holder. It didn’t need a 33. If you’re interested I have a couple tutorials using the turntable. Just go to tutorials at the top and look under spinner art. There are those using the turntable, and several using the kid’s machine. Thanks for dropping by.
Super Cool Lynda! I watched all of your spin-art posts…..fun stuff!
My Best To You,
Wild design. Pretty quilt!
Hi LuAnn, Thanks!
