Love the Spin We're In.....

Back to a "normal" schedule today....everyone back in school....mid-terms continue (hee-hee)
And I have been able to focus a little on the Eloise Quilt...
It takes a lot of scraps to make a scrappy quilt...but what better way to clear out the old and get ready for the new (fabric that is)....

I really like working with high contrast fabrics...they just add some zest to any scrappy quilt
My design is still not completely cemented, but I am happy with these Split Ten Blade wheels...I have added an extra large center....and some blocks will be just quarter wheels opposite each other.

When piecing wheels or arcs I love adding striped fabric in a horizontal makes the wheels spin and movement is always a good thing!!!

Now off to have coffee with my flea market cohort....
