Spools

I've started to make a spool quilt. I have alot of blue fabric in my stash and a few reds/pinks to make this color palette work. I love scrappy quilts. I did a few sample blocks and really like the way the blocks sew up.

The blue and black fabric in the top right hand side block I've had in my stash for forever. Never before found a quilt that it looks good in. This quilt will be the perfect place to use it up. I'm going to use it for the binding and cut the rest up to use in the blocks I have 2 1/2 yards of it. It's great to get it out of the stash.

Love your spools. Hopefully that will be my next project. I'll keep up with yours to see how it's going.

Love your blog.

I'd LOVE to make a scrappy spool quilt at some point in my quilting future. In the meantime I'll enjoying seeing yours develop :)
