E-zine Free Quilting Pattern Before Anyone Else

“Crazy Spin 15 Inch”

Crazy Spin 15 Inch Template Pattern

Get the free 15 inch free pattern by adding it to your cart and checking out: Add Crazy Spin to Cart
This usually makes a 15x15 inch block.

Feel free to adjust the size and include this design to your next project.

Here are the steps to complete it:

Save the image and adjust the size if needed. This typically makes a 15x15 inch block when it is put together using templates.

Decide your route of attack.

Which pairs are you going to put together and in which order.

Every quilter has what works best for them and you will be no different. However, suggestions in the pattern have been made to make it easier.

Mating two pieces that make straight lines are the easiest and require fewer pins. Curved parts require more pinning and maneuvering as you feed it through the sewing machine.

As you mate and sew your pieces your block will grow.

Before you know it, the block will be complete.

When you have enough quilting blocks made, they can be arranged in whichever way you wish for your completed top.

Side Note

Get ready for the TMI (Too Much Information).

A lot has been happening behind the scenes here at

I, Rebecca, just finished my second semester of college as a full time student!

A lot was accomplished this past month. I received new software and have been learning how to use it the last couple of weeks.

The kids and I also painted the house and had new carpet installed.

All of us have been really happy with how it all turned out.

Now that finals are over, I have a couple of weeks before the new semester.

Don't worry! I won't forget about you! I'll be working on the site and making new patterns! will be having new patterns up soon!
