Spool Quilt

I got my spool quilt done done done! All washed and crinkly! I did a swap with some online friends last year for these blocks and look at the wonderful treasure I now have! I"ve slept with it every night since it was done!

and look at the fun backing I put on it!

Progress is still being made in the sewing room. But what I"ve completed now isn't as obvious so no pictures. I had some patterns, papers and notes on 2 tables from cleaning off the big table that I have been going through and either putting away or trashing. The good news is those piles are now done too! So all I have now are the things I threw in my daughters room to get out of the way while I oraganized! But my sewing table is now clear of the paper from the mess so I can get sewing again!!!!!

Can you tell me the size of the blocks for the pattern? I have been wanting to make one of these for years. I love the proportions of your block pieces.

I just love this quilt (whats not to love).. and I think your signature sare fabbo on the back too! I just finished 9 patch swap quilt (well the top) isn't it great to swap blocks and get some that you would never in a million years make but they always seem to work (specially if they are lovely yummy repro's)..

take care

Oh, I love those bright scrappy spools! Maybe I should start my own spool quilt over with more variety.
