Donna's Quilt of Fall Colors

I love fall colors.  I love the rich tones, and fall quilts are my favorite.  Donna's Spinout uses all the rich fall colors and has a really cool twist on the back!

Here is a small excerpt from the Quilty Pleasures blog:
Did you notice how Donna arranged the background fabrics? This adds another spark to the quilt.

Not only is Donna’s quilt lovely from the front, it has a special surprise on the back! In Donna’s words, here’s what happened:

When I…was thinking about a backing, I really didn’t have a matching piece of fabric large enough. But I had so many leftover Spinout blocks, I thought there must be something I could do…for a pieced back. To tell the truth, I was driving down the road and the idea of a Spinout Tic-Tac-Toe game just popped into my head. So instead of a one-fabric backing, I decided to piece mine.

Check out the blog post to read more and see some really great pictures.

Cheers,

Dionne

Great quilt and I do like how the background is used as a "extra" border!
