Making progress.........

Yesterday two friends who rarely ever have the same day off from work came over to sew and chat.  One basted two quilts and the other used my design walls and got a quilt top sewn together.  I worked on centers for my Vintage Spin blocks.  I used the fabric with purple woven in one direction and gold metallic in the other direction.  I haven't sewn them in place yet because I'm not positive those are the 9 blocks I want in the wallhanging.  I will play a little more with arrangement and then sew centers in.  I had to enlarge the circle pattern in the book to have enough overlap onto the wedges.

The purple looks good in the centers... a really deep gold would look good as well. Sewing with friends is always good!!!

Great choice Wanda. I think that fabric is perfect for the centers.

so often I enlarge the circles for patterns a little bit -I prefer to have a little more room to work with then some patterns give you. I love this purple. Must have been nice to have two friends over at the same day for a sewing get together

those purple centers tie them all together. Hand or machine applique?
Going to have to buy the book for this one:)

Looks like the purple was a good choice as it pulls the blocks all together. It's fun to have friends to sew with.

I hope everyone enlarges the photo, really shows how pretty those centers compliment the spinners.

Sewing with friends... wish I was one of them. (*._,*)

Good choice. The purple seems to set off all the other colors1

May I ask how the centers will be attached? Applique?
