Marian from Seamstobesew has done it again! What a wonderful challenging blog hop this is. Two, no more than three colors in a mini quilt. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Schedule for today......
You are here at Ravelly1
Make sure you visit all the bloggers to see all the great creations they've done!!
The fantastic give-aways....

Just leave a comment mentioning your two favorite colors!! That's all it takes to be considered. Marian will announce the winners each day on her blog. So please do check in with her.
Now, back to the main event.....
I took up the challenge, dug into my stash and came up with two unlikely fabrics.
I've had these two in my stash for many years, can't remember or imagine why I purchased them in the first place.
I chose a quick design block which consist of two and three inch strips.
Here, I've sewn and cut four blocks just to see if my idea is going to work. I like what I see, so, onward!!
Sixteen blocks later I can see a secondary design along with the spinning star design.
Next, I added a border.
With pins, a choice of thread, my trusty adhesive spray and a backing fabric, it's time to get this mini quilted.
I decided to stitch around the star design.
All done & bound!! A 17 inch square mini quilt I've named " Cosmic Spinner Dance."
Finally, I'd like to show you all a little quilt that I designed but never quilted years ago. It measures 24" square. Maybe I'll get it quilted soon but don't count on it. I'm already eyeing a new project.
