I love homespun quilts, especially after they are washed and dried, they get all wrinkly and cuddly.
For this quilt we decided on a freehand E2E that I call Looped Spirals. I slightly overlapped the spirals to add interest and mimic the way a plaid overlaps.
The spirals add great texture which will increase and soften with washing. The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select, perfect for homespun quilts! Just the right about of shrinkage and thickness.
And I have to show you the fun pieced back!

Stay tuned for the Blog Hop Party starting Saturday!
Barbara at Rainbows and Calico Things Quilt Shop used the Melrose fabric by Red Rooster for a shop sample. Here’s the quilt that I made with the same fabric – Bryana + Sam .
The quilting design is a freehand E2E called Overlapped Looped Spirals.
The spiral adds great texture to the squareness of the quilt and mimics the focus fabric elements.
Check out Rainbows and Calico Things for Melrose Five and Dime kits to complete this quilt.
Come to the Williamsburg area February 18 or 19 for the I-80 Quilter’s Shopping Spree at the Little Amana Clarion Inn. Lots of vendors under one roof!
