It’s been ages since I did any quilting, figured I’d better get past my funk this morning & just do it. I’ve seen some cute charm quilts lately in blogland and wanted to try one myself. Found the template for this “spool” quilt in an old thrift store pattern book full of traditional blocks & thought it might make a cute kids i-spy. After 2 hrs of back pain at the machine here’s what I’ve got so far (and lookie, all that work shampooing carpets & I can finally snap a pic on my “design floor” again). If you’ve been around my blog before you’ll recognize the fabrics, I’m still going through my scrap basket.
These are 4 1/4” spools so it’s going to take lots of scraps even for a baby quilt. I forgot how tedious sewing curves can be…but I only had to rip & resew the first pair. Broke 2 pins though, lol. Thanks for stopping by!
