Spoolin' around

A Spools quilt has been on my to-do list for a long time.

When I saw that Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms had recently released a mini version of her popular Spools pattern, I knew it was just the thing I was looking for.

I used a charm pack of "Happy Go Lucky" for the spool centers. The pattern was easy to follow.  The best part was playing around with the fabric strips to decide the placement of colors for the spools.

Sewing together the spool tops and bottoms was a little fiddly,  but there were only 9 spools afterall.  Here's my finished top:

This little cutie measures just 16 x 18 inches. All you need for a backing is a fat quarter.  I love it.

  1. So adorable! Love the fabrics and pattern too! I usually like anything by Camille Roskelly and this is no exception.

  2. Cute quilt top; and how nice to be able to use a fat quarter for the backing.

  3. Oh, that is so cute! I also ordered the mini pattern. You have inspired me to move it up on my to-do list!
